A variety of peptides have been proposed as transmitter candidates in non-cholinergic, non-adrenergic nerves. The nerves containing vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP), which innervate blood vessels, non-vascular smooth muscle, mucosal epithelium and glands comprise a major and wide-spread population of the peptide-containing systems.
