NPPC

A gene on chromosome 2q24-qter that encodes a member of the natriuretic peptide family. The secreted NPPB protein product binds to NPR2 and NPR3 receptors; it is involved in natriuresis, diuresis, vasorelaxation, inhibition of renin and aldosterone secretion, and plays a key role in cardiovascular homeostasis. NPPC also plays a role in endochondral ossification by regulating cartilaginous growth plate chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation.
