AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe goals of this review are two folds: (1) to describe the recent understandings on the roles of calcitonin gene-related peptide- α (CGRP) in bone homeostasis and the underlying mechanisms of related neuronal regulation and (2) to propose innovative CGRP-modulated approaches for enhancing bone regeneration in challenging bone disorders.Recent FindingsCGRP is predominantly produced by the densely distributed sensory neuronal fibers in bone, declining with age. Under mechanical and biochemical stimulations, CGRP releases and exerts either physiological or pathophysiological roles. CGRP at phys...
