Fremont, CA, United States, 2012/01/27 - AnaSpec, EGT Group provides a wide range of GO® (catalog) natriuretic peptides for use in research laboratories - Anaspec.com / Eurogentec.com.
Our selection of atrial natriuretic peptides (ANPs) include the biologically active 1-28 amino acid peptide (human/porcine or rat sequences); shorter ANP fragments; and Biotin, FAM and TAMRA labeled human/porcine ANP (1-28). Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) are also available.
Natriuretic peptides are a family of naturally occurring proteins that play a major role in down-regulating the activity of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system; regulating circulatory homeostasis; modulating cardiovascular system, causing natriuresis and vasodilatation. There are at least three major natriuretic peptides that have been discovered: atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)- secreted largely by the atria; brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) - produced by the ventricles and C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP)- located in peripheral blood vessels.
To inquire about custom synthesis of natriuretic peptides not listed above or for other peptides, please email.
