C-type natriuretic peptide forms in pregnancy: maternal plasma profiles during ovine gestation correlate with placental and fetal maturation
(The Endocrine Society, 2009-10)
Circulating concentrations of C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) and a related amino terminal fragment (NTproCNP) were measured at weekly intervals from preconception to 3 wk postpartum in ewes with twins (n = 8) and nonpregnant ...
Caloric restriction, but not caloric loading, affects circulating fetal and maternal C-type natriuretic peptide concentrations in late ovine gestation
(CSIRO PUBLISHING, 2012)
The factors regulating the greatly elevated concentrations of maternal plasma C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) forms in ruminant pregnancy are largely unknown, but nutrient status is likely to be important. Previous work ...
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. ...
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 ...
