General description

Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a vasodilator that belongs to the calcitonin family of peptides. It is produced by motor neurons of peripheral and central nervous system. There are two forms of CGRP, α and β, which exhibit similar functions. The effects of CGRP are mediated by G-protein coupled receptor heterodimer formed by calcitonin-receptor-like receptor (CRLR) and receptor-activity-modifying protein 1 (RAMP1). Several biological effects of CGRP are observed in nervous, endocrine, immune and cardiovascular systems. Multiple studies have implicated CGRP in the pathophysiology of migraine and antagonists to CGRP are being explored as treatment options
Monoclonal Anti-Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide (CGRP) recognizes human and guinea pig CGRP. It does not cross react with rat CGRP.


peptide corresponding to the C-terminal of rat α−calcitonin gene-related peptite (CGRP).


Anti-Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide (CGRP) antibody is suitable for immunohistochemistry at a working antibody dilution of 1:200 to 1:1000 using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections or cryostat tissue sections. The antibody may be used for immunofluorescence at a working dilution of 1:500.

Calcitonin gene-related peptides (alpha and beta isoforms), better known as CGRPalpha and CGRPbeta, were isolated twenty years ago. In fact, these were the first peptides to be characterized using a molecular cloning strategy, which is not the traditional approach of

Migraine is a common neurological disorder that is associated with an increase in plasma calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) levels. CGRP, a neuropeptide released from activated trigeminal sensory nerves, dilates intracranial blood vessels and transmits vascular nociception. Therefore, it is propounded
