Technical Data
Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP)
Brain natriuretic peptide-BNP 32 (also known as B-type natriuretic peptide or "GC-B") is a 32-amino-acid polypeptide secreted by the ventricles of the heart in response to excessive stretching of myocytes (heart muscles cells) in the ventricles. At the time of release, a co-secreted 76 amino acid n-terminal fragment (NT-proBNP) is also released with B-type natriuretic peptide BNP. B-type natriuretic peptide BNP binds to and activates NPRA in a similar fashion to atrial natriuretic peptide but with 10-fold lower affinity. The biological half-life of BNP however, is twice as long as that of ANP. Both ANP and B-type natriuretic peptide BNP have limited ability to bind and activate NPRB.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
