ANP receptor
Family of 3 receptors for atrial natriuretic peptide. ANP-A and ANP-B have intracellular guanylate cyclase and protein kinase-like domains. ANP-C, shares the extracellular ligand-binding and transmembrane domains, but lacks the functional intracellular domains, and is not thought to be involved in signal transduction.
