Natriuretic peptides A, CDD-ANF, Cardiodilatin, CDD, Cardiodilatin-related peptide, CDP, N-terminal proatrial natriuretic peptide, ANP, PND.
Natriuretic Peptide A (NPPA) is a part of the natriuretic peptide family and is involved in cardiovascular homeostasis through regulation of natriuresis, diuresis, and vasodilation. NPPA is synthesized as a great precursor which releases a peptide from the N-terminus with similarity to vasoactive peptide, cardiodilatin, and another peptide from the C-terminus with natriuretic-diuretic activity. In female pregnancy, NPPA is promoting trophoblast invasion and spiral artery remodeling in uterus.
NPPA Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain (a.a 26-123) containing 106 amino acids including an 8 a.a N-terminal His tag. The total molecular mass is 11.7kDa (calculated).
NPPA filtered (0.4 µm) and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml in 20 mM Tris buffer, 50 mM NaCl and 5% w/v trehalosa, pH 7.5.
It is recommended to add 200µl deionized water to prepare a working stock solution of approximately 0.5mg/ml and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely. NPPA is not sterile! Please filter the product by an appropriate sterile filter before using it in the cell culture.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
