Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is a major neuropeptide involved in multiple functions such as vasodilation, smooth-muscle relaxation, sweat secretion, gastrointestinal peristalsis, pancreatic function, and brain activity. In view of the multiple roles associated with VIP, it is important to understand its gene regulation. We have recently isolated the human VIP gene and determined its structure. By in situ hybridization techniques we have now localized this gene to the long arm of… CONTINUE READING
