The BNP Fragment (nt-proBNP 8-29) ELISA is an enzyme imunoassay for the quantitative determination of nt-proBNP (8-29) in Serum or Plasma. The mature form of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is formed from the BNP (1-108) precursor and is secreted predominantly by the cardiac ventricles. Circulating forms of BNP include BNP-32 (77-108), a high molecular weight BNP which has not been well characterizedand and the nt-proBNP (1-76). The BNP fragment is typically measured as a proxy for BNP because of its longer half-life. Recent research suggests that natriuretic peptides are important protectors against fluid overload and high blood pressure. BNP has also been implicated as a valuable marker in assessing cardiac risk.
