Nutrient restriction in early ovine pregnancy stimulates C-type natriuretic peptide production
(CSIRO Publishing, 2015-09-21)
C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP), a paracrine growth factor promoting vasodilation and angiogenesis, is upregulated in human and ovine pregnancy in response to vascular stress or nutrient restriction (NR) in late gestation. ...
Molecular forms of C-type natriuretic peptide in cerebrospinal fluid and plasma reflect differential processing in brain and pituitary tissues
C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is a paracrine growth factor widely expressed within tissues of the central nervous system. Consistent with this is the high concentration of CNP in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), exceeding ...
The trophoblast binucleate cell is the source of maternal circulating C-type natriuretic peptide during ovine pregnancy
(Elsevier Ltd on behalf of the International Federation of Placenta Associations, 2011-09)
Maternal plasma concentrations of C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) and a co-secreted bioinactive aminoterminal fragment (NTproCNP) are elevated during ovine pregnancy. Although the uteroplacental unit has been implicated ...
Dexamethasone increases production of C-type natriuretic peptide in the sheep brain
(Bioscientifica Ltd on behalf of the Society for Endocrinology, 2017-10-01)
Although C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) has high abundance in brain tissues and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the source and possible factors regulating its secretion within the central nervous system (CNS) are unknown. ...
Sustained increases in plasma C-type natriuretic peptides fail to increase concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid: Evidence from pregnant sheep
(Elsevier Inc, 2015-07)
C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is a paracrine growth factor with high abundance in CNS tissues and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Consistent with findings of CNP transcripts in the cerebral microvasculature and hypothalamus, ...
Differential response of C-type natriuretic peptide to estrogen and dexamethasone in adult bone
C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is crucial in promoting endochondral bone growth in mammals including humans but whether this paracrine hormone participates in maintaining bone integrity in the mature skeleton is unknown. ...
