Technical Data
Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP, Atrial Natriuretic Factor)
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), atrial natriuretic factor (ANF), or atriopeptin, is a polypeptide hormone secreted by atrial myocytes that is involved in the homeostatic control of body water, sodium, potassium and adiposity. It is released by atrial myocytes, muscle cells in the atria of the heart, in response to high blood pressure. ANP acts to reduce the water, sodium and adipose loads on the circulatory system, thereby reducing blood pressure.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry, RIA, liquid phase assay without plasma extraction. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: Formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue
RIA: Competetive radioimmunoassay for the clinical measurement of circulating ANP levels in conjunction with cyclic GMP.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

NSO myeloma cells with spleen cells from Balb/c mice.
