There are two known receptors for the vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) termed VPAC1 and VPAC2.[1][2] These receptors bind both VIP and pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide to some degree. Both receptors are members of the 7 transmembrane g protein-coupled family of receptors.

VPAC1 is distributed widely in the CNS, liver, lung, intestine and T-lymphocytes.

VPAC2 is found in the CNS, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, kidney, adipose tissue, testis, and stomach.
