The natriuretic peptides and natriuretic peptide receptors may play a beneficial role in hypertension and heart failure and possibly in opposing associated detrimental cellular changes in the heart, vasculature and kidney. These responses may be, in part, modulated by the natriuretic peptide clearance receptor rather than the natriuretic peptide receptors (NPR-A or NPR-B).
