anti-Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide (rat) guinea pig polyclonal, serum

CGRP is present in the C-cells of the thyroid and in nerves in the brain and periphery. Medullary carcinomas of the thyroid show large amounts of CGRP. The antiserum does not cross-react with amylin.

The CGRP-sequence was predicted from the corresponding mRNA. CGRP is present in the C-cells of the thyroid and in nerves, in both brain and periphery, particularly within the sensory system. CGRP is a potent vasodilator, probably involved in neurogenic inflammation. Medullary carcinomas of the thyroid contain large amounts of CGRP. Absorption with 10 – 100 µg CGRP per ml diluted antiserum abolishes the staining while calcitonin does not. Does not cross-react with amylin (IAPP).
Positive control: Frozen sections of rat colon.
