Name Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide
Equivalent Terms alpha CGRP | alpha-CGRP | beta CGRP | beta-CGRP | Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide | Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide I | Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide I | Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide II | Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide II | Gene-Related Peptide, Calcitonin | Peptide, Calcitonin Gene-Related
CAS Registry Number 83652-28-2
Definition A 37-amino acid peptide derived from the calcitonin gene. It occurs as a result of alternative processing of mRNA from the calcitonin gene. The neuropeptide is widely distributed in the brain, gut, perivascular nerves, and other tissue. The peptide produces multiple biological effects and has both circulatory and neurotransmitter modes of action. In particular, it is a potent endogenous vasodilator.
