Substance P is a modulator of pain transmission. As an extremely potent vasodilator, it produces significant bronchodilation in normal and asthmatic subjects and a maximal increase in forearm blood flow.
The undecapeptide substance P has a number of peripheral actions which include contraction of smooth muscle, reduction of blood pressure and stimulation of secretory tissues. Substance P also occurs in neurones in the central nervous system. It is of particular interest as a possible neurotransmitter or neuromodulator, released by primary sensory neurones.
