Nano-CheckTM NT-proBNP

N-terminal pro-Brain Natriuretic Peptide

Brain natriuretic peptides (BNP) are produced initially as a 134 amino acid pre-pro-peptide, which is cleaved into proBNP as 108 amino acids. This precursor molecule is stored in secretary granules in myocytes. Upon release, proBNP is cleaved by a protease into N-terminal (NT)-proBNP (a 76 amino acid, biologically-inert portion), and BNP (which is biologically active). The highest concentrations of NT-proBNP and BNP are found in the left ventricular (LV) myocardium, but are also detectable in arterial tissue and the myocardium of the right ventricle. A significant body of evidence has developed to demonstrate that NT-proBNP and BNP levels correlate with diagnosis, clinical status, and prognosis in congestive heart failure (CHF).
