VIP Proteins, cDNA Clones Research Reagents

VIP (Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide) is a protein coding gene located on human chromosome 6q25.2. VIP is also known as PHM27. The human VIP gene encodes a 19169 Da protein containing 170 amino acids. The VIP protein is biasedly expressed in appendix, colon and other tissues. Among its related pathways are Neuroscience and Signaling by GPCR. VIP is related to signaling receptor binding and neuropeptide hormone activity. ADCYAP1 is an important paralog of VIP gene. VIP is associated with some diseases, including Vipoma and Vasomotor Rhinitis.

      VIP Background

      VIP, or vasoactive intestinal peptide, is a neuropeptide of 28 amino acid residues that belongs to a glucagon/secretin superfamily, and it exerts its actions through three G-protein-coupled receptors (PAC1, VPAC1, and VPAC2). VIP is synthesized by trophoblast cells; it regulates trophoblast cell function and interaction with the major immune cell populations present in the pregnant uterus.
