Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is the most potent endogenous insulin-stimulating hormone. In the present study the plasma stability and biological activity of a GLP-1 analog, [Ser]GLP-1(7-36)amide, in which the second N-terminal amino acid alanine was replaced by serine, was evaluated in vitro and in vivo. Incubation of GLP-1 with human or rat plasma resulted in degradation of native GLP-1(7-36)amide to GLP-1(9-36)amide, while [Ser]GLP-1(7-36)amide was not significantly degraded by plasma enzymes. Using glucose-responsive HIT-T15 cells, [Ser]GLP-1(7-36)amide showed strong insulinotropic activity, which was inhibited by the specific GLP-1 receptor antagonist exendin-4(9-39)amide. Simultaneous i.v. injection of [Ser]GLP-1(7-36)amide and glucose in rats induced a twofold higher increase in plasma insulin levels than unmodified GLP-1(7-36)amide with glucose and a fivefold higher increase than glucose alone. [Ser]GLP-1(7-36)amide induced a 1.5-fold higher increase in plasma insulin than GLP-1(7-36)amide when given 1 h before i.v. application of glucose. The insulinotropic effect of [Ser]GLP-1(7-36)amide was suppressed by i.v. application of exendin-4(9-39)amide. The present data demonstrate that replacement of the second N-terminal amino acid alanine by serine improves the plasma stability of GLP-1(7-36)amide. The insulinotropic action in vitro and in vivo was not impaired significantly by this modification.

Food ingestion induces a rapid increase in the insulinotropic glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in plasma. Paradoxically, GLP-1 originates from the lower intestines and therefore a complex regulation of postprandial GLP-1 secretion must exist. This was addressed in the present study by utilizing an isolated vascularly perfused rat ileum preparation. Peptides and neurotransmitters thought to be candidate mediators triggering GLP-1 secretion were arterially infused and GLP-1 was measured in the venous effluent. Arterial infusion of cholinergic agonists strongly enhanced GLP-1 secretion which was counteracted by the addition of atropine. Histamine, dopamine, 5-hydoxytryptamine, γ-aminobutyric acid, and norepinephrine had no effect. Peptides of the bombesin family were strong stimulants whereas tachykinins, enkephalins, dynorphin, TRH, calcitonin-gene-related peptide and members of the secretin family, vasoactive intestinal peptide, peptide histidine isoleucine and neuropeptide Y, were less effective. The second incretin hormone, gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP), was the most potent stimulant of GLP-1 secretion in our study. It enhanced GLP-1 release up to sixfold above basal during the early phase followed by a sustained secretion at 400% above basal. This stimulation remained unaffected by atropine. In conclusion, in addition to luminal stimulation of nutrients, a cholinergic impulse as well as peptidergic mediators (among them possibly GIP and GRP) may have an impact on postprandial GLP-1 secretion from the rat ileum.
