  • Relevance
    Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) circulates in blood as a peptide hormone with natriuretic, vasodilatory and renin inhibitory properties. BNP is secreted predominantly by the left ventricular myocytes in response to volume expansion and pressure overload. BNP belongs to a family of structurally similar peptide hormones, which includes atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), BNP, C type natriuretic peptide (CNP) and urodilatin. These peptides are characterized by a common 17 amino acid ring structure with a disulfide bond between two cystein residues. This ring structure shows high homology between different natriuretic peptides (eleven of the 17 amino acid residues are homologous in the ring of each of the natriuretic peptides). BNP is a 32 amino acid peptide with disulfide bond between the cysteine residues Cys10 and Cys26. In earlier studies it has been demonstrated that BNP concentration in blood increases with the severity of congestive heart failure. Quantitative measurement of BNP in blood provides an objective indicator of congestive heart failure severity.

Thank you for contacting us regarding ab19645.

I have confirmed with the laboratory that the antibody has only been specifically tested to work with PFA fixed tissue. We do not have any information on how the antibody will work on paraffin embedded tissue or in the presence of different fixatives.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab19645.

I have confirmed that this antibody has not been specifically tested with cardiac tissue in IHC. According to SwissProt, this protein is expressed in the brain, but less so by cells of the atria. If the protein is expressed in your tissue, then the antibody should detect it, but we do not have any data demonstrating this.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for your enquiry. For ab19601, the epitope location has not been determined and the immunogen was full-length BNP peptide. This antibody reacts with both BNP and proBNP so the epitope is NOT located on the NT-proBNP fragment. For ab19645, this is a polyclonal antibody and therefore it will recognize multiple epitopes. The immunogen is full-length BNP peptide and this product will recognize epitopes along the entire BNP molecule. If you have any additional questions, please contact us again.
