Los peptidos natriureticos conforman un sistema que antagoniza las propiedades del sistema renina-angiotensina, entre ellos estan el peptido natriuretico atrial (ANP), el peptido natriuretico B (BNP) y el peptido natriuretico C (CNP), los dos primeros son producidos por los cardiomiocitos en respuesta a la tension que se produzca sobre las paredes del miocardio y generan diuresis y natriuresis por su accion sobre la nefrona, el ultimo peptido, se produce en varios tejidos y actua de forma paracrina produciendo disminucion del tono vascular.
