  • Traditionally, autonomic cardiovasclar control has been attributed solely to adrenergic (sympathetic) and cholinergic (parasympathetic) neurotransmitters. It has recently been revealed that the cardiac and vascular tissues are also innervated by peptidergic neurons that may mediate nonadrenergic noncholinergic (NANC) functions. Among the neuropeptides, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is of particular interest for the following reasons. First, it is expressed in a quite unusual way: an… CONTINUE READING
