NPPA

(redirected from natriuretic peptide A)

NPPA

A gene on chromosome 1p36.21 that encodes a member of the natriuretic peptide family, which control extracellular fluid volume and electrolyte homeostasis.
 
Molecular pathology
NPPA mutations are associated with atrial fibrillation familial type 6.
