It has been well established that the nervous system utilizes neurotransmitters for cell signaling. Neurotransmitters can be divided into two groups; low molecular weight transmitter molecules such as biogenic amines, purines, or amino acids, and bioactive peptides, of which more than 50 members have been identified in the mammalian central nervous system. Many low molecular weight neurotransmitters are produced within the axon terminal from common cellular metabolites and packaged into synaptic vesicles. In contrast, neuropeptides are synthesized in the cell body and packaged into large dense core vesicles for delivery to the presynaptic membrane. The transport and delivery of vesicles containing neurotransmitter is a highly regulated and complex process. The calcitonin gene peptide superfamily consists of calcitonin, calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), amylin, and adrenomedullin. CGRP is a 37 amino acid neuropeptide that shows widespread distribution and acts as a potent vasodilator. The immunolocalization, neuronal distribution, and vesicular compartmentalization of neurotransmitter molecules and their precursors are important for understanding the modulation, regulation, and function of neurotransmitters in the nervous system.
