Although blood pressure effects have been reported for adrenomedullin 5 (AM-5), a newly identified member of the CGRP super-family, little is known about other biological actions. We report the integrated hemodynamic, hormonal and renal actions of AM-5 (10 and 100 ng/kg/min each for 90 min) in normal conscious sheep. AM-5 reduced mean arterial pressure (MAP) by 12 mmHg at the end of high dose (p<0.001) in association with dose-dependant increments in heart rate (40 beats/min - high dose, p<0.001) and cardiac output (50% - high dose, p<0.001) and dose-dependent falls in calculated total peripheral resistance (CTPR, p<0.001). Plasma renin activity (PRA, four-fold increment, p<0.001)), aldosterone (two-fold increment, p=0.014) and cyclic AMP (50% increment, p<0.001) all rose in response to high dose AM-5. Urine volume and sodium excretion were unchanged. In conclusion, intravenous infusions of AM-5 administered to normal conscious sheep induced significant hemodynamic actions including reduced MAP and CTPR and increased heart rate and cardiac output. Concurrently, AM-5 activated plasma cyclic AMP, PRA and aldosterone. These actions are similar to those previously reported for AM and AM-2. Thus, AM-5 may be another important regulator of volume and pressure homeostasis and may play a role in the pathophysiology of heart disease.
