Atrial natriuretic peptide plays a central role in cardiovascular homeostasis through their natriuretic, vasorelaxant, and anti-hypertrophic activities. Such activities are mediated by the guanylate cyclase-linked, single transmembrane segment receptor functioning as a homodimer. Studies have revealed the structural mechanisms of transmembrane signaling and possible chloride-dependent allosteric control of the receptor activity in the kidney.
