    Abstract

    Atrial and B-type natriuretic peptide are both known to be antagonists of the renin-angiotensin system. C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is a new member of this family except that its principal source is the vascular endothelium. This study tested the hypothesis that CNP is a local inhibitor of vascular angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) activity.
