Calcitonin gene–related peptide inhibits angiotensin II–mediated vasoconstriction in human radial arteries: Role of the Kir channel

The radial artery is increasingly used for coronary artery bypass grafts, but its potential for spasm increases postoperative risk. Alpha-calcitonin gene–related peptide is a potent antihypertensive peptide. Thus, we set out to determine whether calcitonin gene–related peptide can impair angiotensin II–mediated vasoconstriction in human radial arteries and, if so, to determine its mechanism of action.
