Brain Natriuretic Peptide antibody | 50E1
BNP is predominantly secreted from the cardiac ventricles in response to volume and pressure overload, and results in a number of biological activities including natriuresis, diuresis, vasorelaxation, and inhibition of the sympathetic nervous system. A high concentration of BNP in the bloodstream is indicative of heart failure.
Mouse anti Human Brain Natriuretic Peptide antibody, clone 50E1 also detects proBNP.
