• kidney
  • Lower levels of NPPA expression are found in other tissues such as the brain, kidney, lung, uterus and placenta. (wikipedia.org)
  • antibody
  • The antibody was raised in rabbit using a synthetic peptide, and can be used for immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of human BNP. (clontech.com)
  • myocardial
  • 4 The likelihood ratio for a patient without a history of myocardial infarction, with negative results on chest radiography and electrocardiography, and with concentrations of brain natriuretic peptide below the cut off, individually and in combination, are shown in the table. (bmj.com)
  • decrease
  • The net effect of these peptides is a decrease in blood pressure due to the decrease in systemic vascular resistance and, thus, afterload. (wikipedia.org)
  • biological
  • The biological half-life of BNP, however, is twice as long as that of ANP, and that of NT-proBNP is even longer, making these peptides better targets than ANP for diagnostic blood testing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cleavage at other sites produces shorter BNP peptides with unknown biological activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • Brain lymphoma, sometimes called primary lymphoma of the brain, is cancer of an individual's white blood cells that starts in the brain, states MedlinePlus. (reference.com)
