|Calculated MW||14726 Da|
|Other Names||Natriuretic peptides B, Gamma-brain natriuretic peptide, Brain natriuretic peptide 32, BNP(1-32), BNP-32, BNP(1-30), BNP(1-29), BNP(1-28), BNP(2-31), BNP(3-32), BNP(3-30), BNP(3-29), BNP(4-32), BNP(4-31), BNP(4-30), BNP(4-29), BNP(4-27), BNP(5-32), BNP(5-31), BNP(5-29), NPPB|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human BNP was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||BNP Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cardiac hormone which may function as a paracrine antifibrotic factor in the heart. Also plays a key role in cardiovascular homeostasis through natriuresis, diuresis, vasorelaxation, and inhibition of renin and aldosterone secretion. Specifically binds and stimulates the cGMP production of the NPR1 receptor. Binds the clearance receptor NPR3.|
|Tissue Location||Brain and also in atria, but at much lower levels than ANP|

B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a cardiac neurohormone specifically secreted from the ventricles in response to volume expansion and pressure overload (1). The actions of BNP include natriuresis, diuresis, vasorelaxation, and inhibition of renin and aldosterone secretion. It is also found to help restore the body's salt and water balance and improve heart function (2). BNP is co-secreted along with a biologically inactive N-terminal fragment (NT-proBNP). Circulating BNP and NT-proBNP provide important information on cardiac dysfunction, hypervolemia, and risk in patients with severe impairment of kidney function (3).
