GeneID: 796 Human CALCA

Swiss-port # P06881 Human Calcitonin gene-related peptide 1

Gene Symbol CALCA
Gene Full Name calcitonin-related polypeptide alpha
Background This gene encodes the peptide hormones calcitonin, calcitonin gene-related peptide and katacalcin by tissue-specific alternative RNA splicing of the gene transcripts and cleavage of inactive precursor proteins. Calcitonin is involved in calcium regulation and acts to regulate phosphorus metabolism. Calcitonin gene-related peptide functions as a vasodilator and as an antimicrobial peptide while katacalcin is a calcium-lowering peptide. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Aug 2014]
Function CGRP induces vasodilation. It dilates a variety of vessels including the coronary, cerebral and systemic vasculature. Its abundance in the CNS also points toward a neurotransmitter or neuromodulator role. It also elevates platelet cAMP. [UniProt]

    Sandwich ELISA: Calibration curves for MAb combinations clone 16B5 - 42. The immunoassay was pre-coated with 1 μg/well of ARG10152 anti-Procalcitonin antibody [42] as capture antibodies. Recombinant human proalcitonin was added to the wells and incubated for 30 min at RT. After wash away unbonded reagents. A Eu3+-labeled detection antibody, ARG10509 anti-Calcitonin antibody [16B5] (0.1 μg/wel) was added and incubated.
