Guanylin and uroguanylin are structurally related peptides which act on a transmembrane form of guanylate cyclase, termed GC-C. In mammals, they play pivotal roles in body fluid homeostasis. Less well defined additional members belonging to this family were identified in opposum and in eel.

Uroguanylin belongs to the guanylin family of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) regulating peptides. This family of peptides shows homology to the heat stable enterotoxins produced by strains of Escherichia coli and other enteric bacteria that cause a secretory form of diarrhea. Along with the isolation of uroguanylin from urine and the subsequent demonstration of its natriuretic activity by direct effects on the kidney, uroguanylin has been suggested to play a role in the physiological maintenance of sodium balance in vivo. Uroguanylin activation of the guanylate cyclase-C/cyclic guanosine monophosphate pathway elicited analgesic effects in animal models of colonic hypersensitivity, unraveling a novel pathway to treat abdominal pain (Silos-Santiago et al. (2013)).
