A dual effect of calcitonin gene-related peptide on plasma calcium levels in the chick.


Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) lowers plasma calcium in the rat and inhibits bone resorption by isolated rat osteoclasts. In our preliminary studies we found that rat CGRP elevates plasma calcium levels in the chick, a response that was somewhat similar to that of parathyroid hormone. Here, we report that human CGRP (alpha) produces a concentration… (More)
