Adrenomedullin (AM) is a powerful pulmonary vasodilator with antimitogenic properties. We investigated the role of the AM receptor (AMR) and the calcitonin gene-related peptide type-1 receptor (CGRP1R) in regulating pulmonary vascular AM levels. The AMR antagonist hAM(22-52) (120 nmol/L) significantly elevated AM release compared with controls to 250% after(More)
The vasodilator adrenomedullin (AM) is up-regulated in pulmonary hypertension, and inhaled AM is beneficial in patients. Therefore, we investigated the effects of AM on pulmonary endothelin-1 (ET-1). In normoxic isolated rat lungs (IRL) and rat pulmonary artery endothelial cells (RPAEC), the calcitonin gene-related peptide type-1 receptor (CGRP1R)(More)
