Polypeptide with Broad Biological Activity: Isolation from Small Intestine
A polypeptide, which has potent and diverse biological action—including systemic vasodilation, hypotension, increased cardiac output, respiratory stimulation, and hyperglycemia—was isolated from theExpand

VIP as a possible neurotransmitter of non-cholinergic non-adrenergic inhibitory neurones
Many peripheral autonomic nerves are neither cholinergic nor adrenergic. Such nerves are widely distributed in the gastrointestinal, urogenital and respiratory tracts, and in blood vessels1,2. TheExpand

Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) in mouse and rat brain: An immunocytochemical study
Immunoperoxidase technique and light microscopy were used to investigate the distribution of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) in mouse and rat brain. Both 50 micrometers unmounted cryostat andExpand

Moderate Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in Male Mice Lacking the Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide Gene
Background— Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), a pulmonary vasodilator and inhibitor of vascular smooth muscle proliferation, has been reported absent in pulmonary arteries from patients withExpand

Excitotoxicity in the lung: N-methyl-D-aspartate-induced, nitric oxide-dependent, pulmonary edema is attenuated by vasoactive intestinal peptide and by inhibitors of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase.
Excitatory amino acid toxicity, resulting from overactivation of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptors, is a major mechanism of neuronal cell death in acute and chronic neurologicalExpand

Neurochemical characterization of intrinsic neurons in ferret tracheal plexus.
Although neuroanatomical and neurophysiological features of neurons in the ferret trachea have been studied, the neural mediators associated with this plexus have not been completely characterized.Expand

Release of vasoactive intestinal polypeptide in mast cells by histamine liberators
VASOACTIVE INTESTINAL POLYPEPTIDE (VIP), originally isolated from porcine duodenum1, is a potent relaxant of vascular and nonvascular smooth muscle2, and a stimulant of adenylate cyclase activity3,4.Expand
