Introduction The intestinal incretin hormones, glucagon-like peptide-1 (7–36) amide (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) are released in response to fat and carbohydrate ingestion. Both peptides act to augment

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

Introduction Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a hormone secreted from enteroendocrine L-cells, and is well recognized as an incretin that induces insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner ( Drucker 2006 ). The functions of GLP-1 have been

Introduction The incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) has potent insulinotropic effects on pancreatic β-cells, and further promotes glucose lowering by enhancing glucose uptake and glyconeogenesis in peripheral tissues

Introduction Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a peptide hormone secreted by the enteroendocrine L-cells of the small intestine in response to food intake ( Kieffer & Habener 1999 , Drucker 2001 ). GLP-1 plays an important role in
