The gene coding for calcitonin was isolated and characterized in a non-mammalian vertebrate, chicken. Sequencing of the 3'-end of this gene revealed after the calcitonin coding exon, an intron followed by an exon coding for a calcitonin gene-related peptide, which displays significant amino acid sequence homology with mammalian CGRPs so far sequenced.
