Adrenomedullin is known to induce profound hypotension in vivo, but the direct effect of this peptide on isolated arteries has not been demonstrated. This study estimated the vasodilative effects of adrenomedullin in comparison with those of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in basilar, mesenteric, coronary, renal and femoral arteries isolated from the dog. Adrenomedullin (3 to 100 nM) and CGRP (1 to 30 nM) induced concentration-dependent relaxation of these arteries with and without endothelium, and the relaxing effects were slightly greater in endothelium-intact arteries than in denuded ones. The vasodilative potency of adrenomedullin relative to CGRP was smaller in the femoral artery than in basilar, mesenteric, coronary and renal arteries.
