|Alternative Name||CGRP / CALCA (CALCA Antibody Abstract)|
|Background||Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide [CGRP] is a 37 amino acid peptide and is the most potent endogenous vasodilator currently known (Brain et al.,1985). CGRP is primarily produced in nervous tissue, however, its receptors are expressed throughout the body. CGRP is also strongly implicated in the vasodilatory effect of endogenous cannabinoid anandamide in the brain. This effect was found to be antagonized by capsazepine. CGRP is also currently a major target of research in regards to factors effecting the onset of migraine headaches (Edvinsson L., 2003). CGRP antibodies have been used successfully in Immunoneutralization (Wong et al., 1993)Synonyms: Alpha-type CGRP, CALC1, CGRP-I, Calcitonin gene-related peptide I|
|Pathways||Hormone Activity, cAMP Metabolic Process, Myometrial Relaxation and Contraction, Regulation of G-Protein Coupled Receptor Protein Signaling, Skeletal Muscle Fiber Development, Feeding Behaviour|

Immunocytochemistry: 1/50-1/100. Immunofluorescence and Immunohistochemistry: This antibody is an excellent tool forImmunohistochemistry and for multiple labeling immunofluorescence of peripheral tissuelike stomach, intestine, pancreas, sensory ganglia, and all the regions of the body that areinnervated by primary afferent neurons as well as central nervous tissue. Suggested Positive Controls: Dorsal root ganglia, pancreas and gut. Not recommended for Western blotting.
