Immunostaining of CGRP (red) in cryopreserved DRG neurons grown on coverslips. 40xmag. Green staining is PGP9.5. Yellow staining is the colocalization of CGRP and PGP9.5. Cells were obtained and photo was provided courtesy of QBMCellScience.
Anti-Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide (CGRP) Antibody
Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide (CGRP)
Calcitonin Gene Related Peptide [CGRP] is a 37 amino acid peptide and is the most potent endogenous vasodilator currently known (Brain et al.,1985). CGRP is primarily produced in nervous tissue, however, its receptors are expressed throughout the body. CGRP is also strongly implicated in the vasodilatory effect of endogenous cannabinoid anandamide in the brain. This effect was found to be antagonized by capsazepine. CGRP is also currently a major target of research in regards to factors effecting the onset of migraine headaches (Edvinsson L., 2003). CGRP antibodies have been used successfully in immunoneutralization (Wong et al., 1993)
