Adrenomedullin: potential in physiology and pathophysiology.

Abstract

Adrenomedullin (ADM), a 52-amino acid ringed-structure peptide with C-terminal amidation, was originally isolated from human pheochromocytoma. ADM mediates vasodilatory and natriuretic properties through the second messenger cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate (cAMP), nitric oxide and the renal prostaglandin system. ADM immunoreactivity and its gene are… (More)
