PACAP (pituitary adenylate-cyclase activating polipeptide) is a neuropeptide with well-known protective effects. Its protective effect has been shown in several peripheral organs. The aim of our research is to examine the effects of PACAP on intestinal cells. During our experiments we examine the effect of PACAP in different in vitro models.

PACAP (pituitary adenylate-cyclase activating polipeptide) is a neuropeptide with well-known neuroprotective and cytoprotective effects. Its protective effect has been shown in several peripheral organs. Based on studies and the results of our team it is known, that PACAP is protective in different kidney injury models. Among others, kidney transplantation and other surgical interventions can be accompanied by ischaemia-reperfusion induced kidney injury. The aim of our research is to investigate the role of endogenous and exogenous PACAP in the kidney during ischaemia-reperfusion.
