adrenomedullin   

GtoPdb Ligand ID: 683

Abbreviated name: AM
Comment: Adrenomedullin is 52 amino acid peptide which is mainly expressed in endothelial and smooth muscle cells. It acts as a vasodilatory peptide and it is known to regulate endothelial barrier function and vascular tone. Evidence from animal models indicates that it is a key player in the development of sepsis-associated hemodynamic and microcirculatory disorders.
Species: Human
