Gene: Nppc (natriuretic peptide C) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nppc
Name: natriuretic peptide C
RGD ID: 620850
Description: Enables hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of biosynthetic process; positive regulation of cGMP-mediated signaling; and positive regulation of osteoblast differentiation. Acts upstream of or within receptor guanylyl cyclase signaling pathway. Located in extracellular space and secretory granule. Biomarker of aortic valve stenosis and heart disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in depressive disorder and hypertension. Orthologous to human NPPC (natriuretic peptide C); PARTICIPATES IN C-type natriuretic peptide signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 3',5'-cyclic GMP; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acrylamide.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: C-type natriuretic peptide; natriuretic peptide precursor C; natriuretic peptide precursor type C
