Technical Data
CALCA, ID (CALCA, CALC1, Calcitonin gene-related peptide 1, Alpha-type CGRP, Calcitonin gene-related peptide I)
This gene encodes the peptide hormones calcitonin, calcitonin gene-related peptide and katacalcin by tissue-specific alternative RNA splicing of the gene transcripts and cleavage of inactive precursor proteins. Calcitonin is involved in calcium regulation and acts to regulate phosphorus metabolism. Calcitonin gene-related peptide functions as a vasodilator while katacalcin is a calcium-lowering peptide. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry and ELISA. Other applications have not been tested.
