Calcitonin-related polypeptide alpha

Calcitonin, Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide, CGRP
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.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009] (from NCBI)

Ashina et al., Copenhagen, Denmark. In Prog Neurobiol, Feb 2016
The development of the triptan class of serotonin 5-HT1B/1D/1F receptor agonists has advanced our understanding of the neurobiology of migraine pain, which subsequently resulted in the development of calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP) modulators that are now showing promise as acute and preventative anti-migraine agents.
