Peptides  >  Calcitonin Related Peptides
Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), adrenomedullin (ADM) and amylin belong to a unique group of calcitonin-related peptide hormones important for homeostasis in diverse tissues. Calcitonin, a 32-amino acid peptide hormone, is essential for calcium balance, whereas CGRP and ADM are important for neurotransmission and cardiovascular and respiratory function. Calcitonin regulates mineral balance by controlling blood concentrations of calcium and phosphorus metabolism and can cause hypercalcemia. An increase in the serum calcium level is known to stimulate calcitonin secretion. In mammals, the major source of calcitonin is from the parafollicular or C cells in the thyroid gland, but it is also synthesized in a wide variety of other tissues, including the lung and intestinal tract. Calcitonin contains a single disulfide bond, which causes the amino terminus to assume the shape of a ring. The calcitonin family of peptides act through G-protein protein coupled membrane receptors.
