Background: CALCRL (Calcitonin gene-related peptide type 1 receptor) is a receptor for calcitonin-gene-related peptide (CGRP) in the presence of the receptor activity modifying protein 1 (RAMP1) and receptor for adrenomedullin in the presence of RAMP2 or RAMP3. CALCRL is predominantly expressed in the lung and heart. The receptor is considered as a potential target for anti-migraine drugs.
Application: Functional assays
