Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a neuroactive peptide present in some spinal cord motoneurons and at their motor endplates in skeletal muscle. Although detectable levels of CGRP change after surgical and pharmacological interruptions of neuromuscular connectivity, a clear understanding of its physiological role in the motor system is lacking.

Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is present in some spinal cord motoneurons and at neuromuscular junctions in skeletal muscle. We previously reported increased numbers of CGRP-positive (CGRP+) motoneurons supplying hindlimb extensors after downhill exercise (Homonko DA and Theriault E, Inter J Sport Med 18: 1-7, 1997). The present study identifies the(More)
