Chemical Glucagon-Like Peptides

Name Glucagon-Like Peptides
Equivalent Terms Enteroglucagon | Enteroglucagons | Glucagon Like Peptides | Glucagon Like Polypeptides | Glucagon-Like Polypeptides | Gut Glucagon
CAS Registry Number 62340-29-8
Definition Peptides derived from proglucagon which is also the precursor of pancreatic GLUCAGON. Despite expression of proglucagon in multiple tissues, the major production site of glucagon-like peptides (GLPs) is the INTESTINAL L CELLS. GLPs include glucagon-like peptide 1, glucagon-like peptide 2, and the various truncated forms.
