  • Target

    • Relevance
      CGRP is present in C-cells of the thyroid and in central and peripheral nerves. CGRP has several important physiologic roles: it is a potent vasodilator, and can affect the force and rate of heart beat; it can modulate acetylcholine receptor function at the neuromuscular junction; it has been demonstrated to block tolerance to morphine; and it can modulate antigen presentation in Langerhans cells in the skin. Despite these important physiologic functions, therapeutic strategies using CGRP have been impeded due to the lack of a cloned CGRP receptor with which ligands could be developed.

    Anti-CGRP antibody images

    • IHC-P image of CGRP staining on rat spinal cord sections using ab36001 (1/3000). The sections were deparafinized and subjected to heat mediated antigen retrieval. The sections were then blocked using 1% BSA at 21°C for 10 min. The primary antibody was used 21°C for 2 hours.

      See Abreview

    • ab36001 staining mouse colon tissue sections by IHC-Fr.  Sections were PFA fixed and blocked in 5% serum for 30 minutes at 24°C prior to incubating with ab36001, diluted 1/200 in PBS + 0.2% Triton X-100, for 18 hours at 4°C.  The secondary antibody was an Alexa Fluor® 546 conjugated, diluted 1/200.
