Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is extensively distributed throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems and has been shown to be a 37 amino acid multifunctional neuropeptide involved in a wide range of physiological and pathological processes. Recently, there is increasing evidence suggesting that CGRP also exists in non-nerve cells, such as epithelial cells, endothelial cells, endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, peripheral blood mononuclear cells… CONTINUE READING
