Application
Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) decreases the systemic vascular resistance and central venous pressure as well as increases the natriuresis. Thus, the net effect of BNP and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is a decrease in blood volume, which lowers systemic blood pressure and afterload, yielding an increase in cardiac output, partly due to a higher ejection fraction.
Description
Brain natriuretic peptide, uretic peptide or Ventricular Natriuretic Peptide (still BNP), is a 32-amino acid polypeptide secreted by the ventricles of the heart in response to excessive stretching of heart muscle cells (cardiomyocytes). BNP is named as such because it was originally identified in extracts of porcine brain, although in humans it is produced mainly in the cardiac ventricles.
