), oxyntomodulin (OXM) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), have been identified as players in the regulation of feeding by relaying meal-related information on nutritional status to the brain. Based on more than three decades of experimental evidence from rodent

Introduction Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP1), produced by intestinal enteroendocrine L-cells in response to the ingestion of nutrients ( Schirra et al . 1996 ), is highly insulinotropic and an inhibitor of gastrointestinal motility, effects that

-cell desensitisation compared with sulphonylureas may occur following prolonged exposure to nateglinide ( Ball et al. 2004 b ). In vivo , insulin secretion can be stimulated by glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone of the enteroinsular axis, released

Introduction Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a potent endogenous modulator of insulin secretion that is released by the L-cells in the crypts of the jejunum and ileum in response to a meal ( Kieffer & Habener 1999 ). Its function

Introduction Glucagon-like peptide-1(7–36)amide (GLP-1) is an intestinal peptide synthesised in L-cells. It is also produced in the brain ( Jin et al. 1988 , Kreymann et al. 1989 ), where it exerts some effects on
