Calcitonin gene-related peptide(CGRP) stimulates the release of atrial natriuretic peptide(ANP) from isolated rat atria.

Abstract

The effect of calcitonin gene-related peptide(CGRP) on the release of atrial natriuretic peptide(ANP) was studied in spontaneously beating, isolated rat atria. CGRP stimulated the ANP release in a dose-dependent manner. When the atria were incubated with a combination of phentolamine, propranolol, and atropine, these antagonists blocked neither the rise in… (More)
