    A wide distribution of tachykinin-containing projections of capsaicin-sensitive primary afferent neurons is present in the peripheral organs of respiratory, gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems. Tachykinins, along with calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and other neuropeptides, can be...

    Neurogenic inflammation is caused by the release of substance P and CGRP from sensory nerves, which stimulates microvascular plasma extravasation and vasodilatation. There is now an increasing body of evidence supporting a role for these neuropeptides in the control of the immune response, in...

    Abstract: Objective: Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), a potent vasodilator released from a subset of sensory Aδ- and C-fiber afferents, has been suggested to play a beneficial role in myocardial ischemia. The aim of the present study was to investigate some receptors possibly involved...

    The morphology, topographic distribution, effects of denervation, and exposure to hypercapnic hypoxia of endocrine cells were examined in rat larynx. The endocrine cells, which were immunoreactive for protein gene product 9.5 (PGP 9.5) and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), were observed...
