Beta naturetic peptide (BNP) belongs to a family of structurally similar peptides that are produced by myocardial cells as well as by other cells. Two types of naturetic proteins are produced by the heart: A-type naturetic peptide (ANP) (made exclusively by atrial myocytes and BNP. ANP is made by both atrial and ventricular myocytes. BNP stays constant in relation to cardiac stress, ANP does change. Source: Regenstrief Institute

Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is an active fragment (1-32) of ProBNP which is produced by myocardial cells. It increases in both right-sided and left-sided heart failure as well as in systolic and diastolic heart failure. Thus, it is used to diagnose and manage heart failure. When a patient is taking recombinant PBN (Natricor), BNP will reflect serum levels. NT-ProBNP, an inactive fragment (1-78) of ProBNP is used to assess the degree of failure. Both of these polypeptides have roughly the same predictive power. NT-ProBNP is commonly called ProBNP. Source: Regenstrief Institute
