• calcitonin-gene-re
  • 1. Binding sites for calcitonin-gene-related peptide were localized and characterized in porcine coronary arteries using quantitative autoradiography, and the density of binding sites was compared between large epicardial and small intramyocardial coronary arteries. (clinsci.org)
  • 2. A single class of binding sites for calcitonin-gene-related peptide with a dissociation constant of 2.1 ± 0.2 nmol/l was detected in both the large and small coronary arteries. (clinsci.org)
  • β-Human calcitonin-gene-related peptide showed higher affinity than α-human calcitonin-gene-related peptide for the binding sites. (clinsci.org)
  • 4. The present findings lend further support to the theory of regional variation in the vasodilator response to calcitonin-gene-related peptide in porcine coronary arteries, which seems to be due to different densities of a single type of receptor for calcitonin-gene-related peptide.

  • A study was carried out to investigate the role of the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in the regulation of electrolyte transport in the rat and human epididymis. (hku.hk)
  • plasma
  • Background- The diagnostic and prognostic values of plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) testing are established. (ahajournals.org)
  • Plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) measurement has been established as a helpful aid in the diagnosis of heart failure (HF). (ahajournals.org)
  • The ability of cell-penetrating peptides to cross plasma membranes has been explored for various applications, including the delivery of bioactive molecules to inhibit disease-causing cellular processes. (diva-portal.org)
  • transport
  • These findings extend the knowledge of the variables that condition intracellular Cell-penetrating peptide mediated transport of nucleic acids, which ultimately translates into a small step towards successful non-viral gene therapy. (diva-portal.org)
