Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B
The calcitonin family of bioactive peptides comprises of calcitonin, amylin, two calcitonin-gene related peptides (CGRP1 and CGRP2) and adrenomedullin (ADM). Adrenomedullin (ADM) is a 52aa hypotensive peptide. It has structural similarity with CGRP and amylin. ADM is produced in peripheral tissues, adrenal medulla, lung and kidney. ADM has specific receptors on astrocytes and it is unregulated in ischaemia. The calcitonin family peptides probably act through G-protein coupled membrane receptors. Recently, a homolog of calcitonin receptor, CRLR (calcitonin-receptor-like receptor human 461aa; rat/mouse 463aa) was identified. It is now shown that CRLR can function as either a CGRP receptor or an ADM receptor, depending upon which members of a new family of proteins called receptor activity modifying proteins (RAMP1-3) are expressed.
AM and PAMP are potent hypotensive and vasodilatator agents. Numerous actions have been reported most related to the physiologic control of fluid and electrolyte homeostasis. In the kidney, AM is diuretic and natriuretic, and both AM and PAMP inhibit aldosterone secretion by direct adrenal actions. In pituitary gland, both peptides at physiologically relevant doses inhibit basal ACTH secretion. Both peptides appear to act in brain and pituitary gland to facilitate the loss of plasma volume, actions which complement their hypotensive effects in blood vessels.
