Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B
The calcitonin family of bioactive peptides comprises of calcitonin, amylin, two calcitonin-gene related peptides
(CGRP1, and CGRP2) and adrenomedullin (ADM). Calcitonin is 32 aa peptide found in the parafollicular "C" cells of the thyroid in mammals. It is also found in a number of non-mammals. It regulates the mineral (calcium and phosphate) balance. Calcitonin causes hypercalcemia by acting as an inhibitor of osteoclast induced bone resorption. CGRP is a 37-aa peptide produced by tissue specific processing of the calcitonin gene. Calcitonin is the major product in the thyroid, whereas CGRP is the major product in neural tissues. CGRP is a potent cardiovascular agent. It has structural similarity with amylin. CGRP is found in two isoforms (CGRP-I and CGRP-II) that differs only by 3 amino acids. Amylin is a 37-aa peptide produced in the pancreatic beta-cell secretory granules and is co-released with insulin. Amylin also has CGRP-like effects on bone metabolism. Amylin has specific binding sites in the CNS and it may regulate gastric emptying and influence carbohydrate metabolism. Adrenomedullin (ADM) is a 52-aa hypotensive peptide. It has structural similarity with CGRP and amylin. ADM is produced in peripheral tissues, adrenal medulla, lung, and kidney.
