Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide (PACAP) receptors (nomenclature as agreed by the NC-IUPHAR Subcommittee on Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide Receptors [5-6]) are activated by the endogenous peptides VIP (VIP, P01282), PACAP-38 (ADCYAP1, P18509), PACAP-27 (ADCYAP1, P18509), peptide histidine isoleucineamide (PHI), peptide histidine methionineamide (PHM (VIP, P01282)) and peptide histidine valine (PHV (VIP, P01282)).

Other hormonal and growth factors that could play a role in the pathogenesis of pituitary hyperplasia include vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating peptide.
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide also known as PACAP is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ADCYAP1 gene. [1][2] PACAP is similar to vasoactive intestinal peptide. One of its effects is to stimulate enterochromaffin-like cells. It binds to vasoactive intestinal peptide receptor and to the PACAP receptor.
