Some specific topics covered include muscle involvement and IGF-1 signaling in genetic disorders, mitochondrial encephalomyopathies and related syndromes, double diabetes in youth, C-type natriuretic peptide and overgrowth, and the role of transcription factors in midline central nervous system and pituitary defects.
One is atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), another is C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP), and the final one is urodilatin.
Along with A- and C-type natriuretic peptides, BNP participates in the maintenance of cardiorenal function by increasing sodium excretion and reducing cardiac load and blood pressure (3, 4).
The natriuretic peptide family has 3 structurally related members: atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)  [also called atrial natriuretic factor (ANF)], brain or B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), and C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) (1).
To the Editor: It has been difficult to establish an endocrine role for C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP).
A single-nucleotide polymorphism in C-type natriuretic peptide gene may be associated with hypertension.
Chapter 3 does an excellent job of presenting the complete physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology of the natriuretic peptide family, including the noncardiac family members C-type natriuretic peptide and urodilatin.
