Abstract
Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP) are structurally closely related neuropeptides, which exert prominent pharmacological effects on heart function through three types of receptors: VPAC1, VPAC2, and PAC1. All of them are present in the heart. Localization and function of these endogenous peptide molecules and their receptors in the heart will be presented

Keywords: Heart, Peptide molecules, Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP), Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)
