Glucagon Like Peptide-1 EIA Kit and Related products


GLP-1 is a peptide hormone from the intestinal mucosa, which is produced from its precursor, proglucagon by post transnational processing. The mammalian proglucagon is synthesized in the neuroendocrine L-cell of the intestine and the alpha-cells of the pancreas. It contains within its structure the sequences of glucagon and two glucagon-like peptides (GLP-1 and GLP-2) in tandem flanked at their amino and carboxyl termini by dibasic residues. GLP-1 is a 37 amino acids peptide and produced in the small intestine and in the pancreas in the human, in either C-terminal-amidated on glycine-extended form. GLP1 (7-36) amide and its receptor are present in several brain regions and may play a role in the physiological control of feeding. Several reports have been presented as follows as to the biological activities of GLP-1. GLP-1 (7-37) and (7-36) amide is known as one of the most potent insulin secretagogues.
Yanaihara Institute Inc. developed a quantitative EIA kit with high specificity and sensitivity (detection limit 0.206ng/mL) for rat/mouse/human GLP-1 (YK160) as a useful tool for these necessaries.
