||Native Porcine BNP isprepared from Porcine.
||Porcine is a member of the natriureticpeptide family and is a secreted protein which functions as a cardiachormone. The protein undergoes two cleavage events, one within the cell and asecond after secretion into the blood. The protein"s biological actionsinclude natriuresis, diuresis, vasorelaxation, inhibition of renin andaldosterone secretion, and a key role in cardiovascular homeostasis. BNP is a32 aa peptide secreted by the ventricles of the heart in response toexcessive stretching of myocytes in the ventricles. A high concentration ofthis protein in the bloodstream is indicative of heart failure.
