ANPA is a receptor for atrial natriuretic peptide. It exhibits guanylate cyclase activity on binding of ANF. There seem to be at least three ANP receptors: two with guanylate cyclase activity (ANPA and ANPB) and one (ANPC) which is probably responsible for the clearance of ANP from the circulation without a role in signal transduction. This Type I membrane protein belongs to the adenylyl cyclase class-4/guanylyl cyclase family and contains 1 protein kinase-like domain.
