Gene Symbol NPPB
Gene Full Name N-terminal prohormone of brain natriuretic peptide
Background This gene is a member of the natriuretic peptide family and encodes a secreted protein which functions as a cardiac hormone. The protein undergoes two cleavage events, one within the cell and a second after secretion into the blood. The protein's biological actions include natriuresis, diuresis, vasorelaxation, inhibition of renin and aldosterone secretion, and a key role in cardiovascular homeostasis. A high concentration of this protein in the bloodstream is indicative of heart failure. The presence of myocardial injury is a significant predictor of mortality in hospitalized coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients, and there is evidence of increased levels of natriuretic peptide B in hospitalized non-survivor COVID-19 patients. The protein also acts as an antimicrobial peptide with antibacterial and antifungal activity. Mutations in this gene have been associated with postmenopausal osteoporosis.

Function May affect cardio-renal homeostasis (PubMed:17372040). Able to promote the production of cGMP although its potency is very low compared to brain natriuretic peptide 32 (PubMed:17372040). [UniProt]
Cellular Localization Secreted. [UniProt]
Calculated MW 15 kDa
PTM The brain natriuretic peptide 32 form is cleaved at Pro-104 by the prolyl endopeptidase FAP (seprase) activity (in vitro). [UniProt]
