The mechanism seems to involve l-arginine-nitric oxide (NO)-cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) signaling pathway (Kulkarni 2007).
B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) [3] is a circulating hormone that possesses pluripotent actions on cardiorenal and neurohumoral function following activation of its receptor, guanylyl cyclase receptor-A (GC-A), and generation of the second messenger, cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) (1).
