Summary: (from NCBI-Entrez) ..[read more]This gene encodes one of three natriuretic peptide receptors. Natriutetic peptides are small peptides which regulate blood volume and pressure, pulmonary hypertension, and cardiac function as well as some metabolic and growth processes. The product of thi
Suga S,et al. (Endocrinology. 1992) studied the receptor selectivity of natriuretic peptide family and found that the C-receptor binds BNP with a lower affinity compared with other peptides. The rank order of binding affinity for the C-receptor was ANP greater than CNP greater than BNP in both humans and rats.
