CGRP receptor is a heterotrimer: a large peptide with 7 transmembrane domains, named calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CLR or CRLR), is supplemented by a small single transmembrane peptide, named receptor activity-modifying protein (RAMP1) that forms the CGRP-specific ligand binding site. CGRP receptors are expressed by multiple different cell types within the nervous, cardiovascular and immune systems that are thought to play important roles in migraine pathology: on cerebral vascular smooth muscle, where they cause vasodilation, on dural mast cells triggering their degranulation, at the central terminals of the trigeminal nerve, where CGRP is a neuromodulator at second-order nociceptive neurons in the spinal trigeminal nucleus caudalis and in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, where CGRP has a similar role in inducing central sensitisation to tactile stimuli. CGRP is produced in both peripheral and central neurons. It is a potent peptide vasodilator and can function in the transmission of pain.
