This Week's Product Spotlight

Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide (CGRP)

The PepTalk this week looks at a new Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide (CGRP)-targeting drug that has been approved for the treatment of migraines. As a 37-amino acid neuropeptide that was first identified in 1982, CGRP belongs to the same family as adrenomedullin, amylin, and calcitonin. It is a hypotensive vasodilator and can be found circulating in both the nervous and endocrine systems. It exists in two isoforms, α and β, with α-CGRP (CGRP I) as the most studied form. We are pleased to offer several α-CGRP products for your research needs and should you require bulk or custom CGRP, please contact us today for a quotation.
