The heart produces natriuretic peptides that are critical regulators of blood pressure and renal function. This study examined the molecular evolution of natriuretic peptides in vertebrates and discovered novel forms of the peptides in birds. The research outcomes advanced our knowledge of the importance of these peptides in animal physiology.
