Adrenomedullin Summary

Description: A 52-amino acid peptide with multi-functions. It was originally isolated from PHEOCHROMOCYTOMA and ADRENAL MEDULLA but is widely distributed throughout the body including lung and kidney tissues. Besides controlling fluid-electrolyte homeostasis, adrenomedullin is a potent vasodilator and can inhibit pituitary ACTH secretion.

Also Known As: ADM (1-52); ADM(1-52); Adrenomedullin (1-52); PAMP(1-20)NH2; Proadrenomedullin (1-20); Proadrenomedullin N-Terminal 20 Peptide; Proadrenomedullin N Terminal 20 Peptide
