GLP-1 (active)

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a post-translational product of preproglucagon, a protein hormone produced in intestinal
L cells that plays a key role in the promotion of glucose-dependent insulin secretion and insulin biosynthesis. GLP-1 works in concert with insulin to inhibit glucose secretion and lower overall blood glucose levels. GLP-1 plays roles in gastric emptying upon nutrient intake and in the regulation of short-term feeding behavior. Upon release, it acts through a single G-protein-coupled receptor. GLP-1 receptors are present in several tissues, including pancreatic islets, lung, gastrointestinal tract, and central nervous system. Evidence suggests that GLP-1 also can provide beneficial, cyto-protective effects on neuronal cells, skeletal muscle, and the myocardium, elevating its potential role in Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular homeostasis and disease. The cleaved peptides, commonly referred to as GLP-1 (7-36) amide and GLP-1 (7-37) are the biologically active forms of GLP-1. In vivo, these active isoforms are rapidly cleaved by dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV). GLP-1 in its bioactive form plays a crucial role in blood glucose regulation. The amino acid sequence for GLP-1 is conserved among mammalian species, i.e., human, mouse, rat, monkey, canine, etc.
