EVIDENCE FOR A 12 kDa "CARRIER PROTEIN" FOR NATRIURETIC HORMONE

By Harvey Craig Gonick

Abstract

The search for the elusive natriuretic hormone continues. In this review evidence is presented that isolating the carrier protein for natriuretic hormone is a necessary first step before splitting off the final hormone. The carrier protein has a molecular weight of 12 kDa while the final hormone has a molecular weight of 408 daltons. Both compounds inhibit Na-K-ATPase but the compound containing the carrier protein predominates. The question has been raised as to whether the carrier protein is in actuality proANF, a 17 kDa protein that can be split between a 14 kDa protein (the presumptive proANF) and the 3 kDa ANF
