Background

Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a 37-amino acid peptide produced by alternative splicing of calcitonin gene transcripts. It is characterized by a six amino acid ring structure linked by a disulfide bridge and an amidated C-terminus.

CGRP is present in parafollicular cells (C-cells) of the thyroid and in central and peripheral nerves. It is a potent vasodilator and can function in the transmission of pain. It has a major role in migraine pathophysiology, and CGRP antibodies have been used successfully in immunoneutralization.
