Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP) ELISA Kit


Human ANP ELISA kit is a procedure intended for determining in vitro quantitative amounts of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP, atrial natriuretic factor, ANF, atrial natriuretic hormone, ANH) in human serum, cell lysates, plasma, other biological fluids and cell culture supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 4.688 pg/ml.


Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) can also be referred to as atrial natriuretic hormone (ANH), atrial natriuretic factor (ANF), atriopeptin, cardionatrine and cardiodilatin. It is a 28 amino acid polypeptide hormone which is secreted by heart muscle cells, a powerful vasodilator. Human ANP is responsible for reducing the blood pressure by regulating homeostatic control of the body water, fat, sodium and potassium levels. It is often released by muscles cells in the atria of the heart in response to high blood volume. It can be secreted in response to raised sodium concentration, stretching of the atrial wall, endothelin, increased sympathetic stimulation of β-adrenoceptors and exercise.

Atrial natriuretic peptide is able to bind to a specific set of receptors which are called ANP receptors, this results in reducing blood volume, systemic blood pressure and a reduction in cardiac output. Generally, the function of ANP is to counter the increase in the volume and pressure of blood that is caused via the renin-angiotensin system.

The following atrial natriuretic peptide ELISA kit is an ideal tool for measuring concentrations of ANP, ANF and ANH using various different types of sample types. ANP and many of its related peptides are important biomarkers for many cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure and myocardial infarction. Also, recombinant atrial natriuretic peptide has been approved in Japan to be used in order to treat patients experiencing heart failure.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
