Relationship of diastolic blood pressure with cyclic GMP excretion among young adults (the CARDIA Study): influence of a family history of hypertension. Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults.
Guanosine 3':5'-cyclic monophosphate (cGMP) is the second messenger of nitric oxide and atrial natriuretic factor, and mediates local vasodilatation. These vasodilatory factors are important in blood pressure regulation and possibly in the etiology of hypertension. Urinary cGMP levels among normotensive young adults have not previously been studied.
