Compound Summary for: CID 16135499

Glucagon-Like Peptide 1

Also known as: CHEMBL410972; Glucagon-like peptide-1; Glucagon-like-peptide-1; Glucagon-related peptide I; Proglucagon (72-108); GLP-1
Molecular Formula: C149H226N40O45   Molecular Weight: 3297.62974   InChIKey: DTHNMHAUYICORS-KTKZVXAJSA-N
A peptide of 36 or 37 amino acids that is derived from PROGLUCAGON and mainly produced by the INTESTINAL L CELLS. GLP-1(1-37 or 1-36) is further N-terminally truncated resulting in GLP-1(7-37) or GLP-1-(7-36) which can be amidated. These GLP-1 peptides are known to enhance glucose-dependent INSULIN release, suppress GLUCAGON release and gastric emptying, lower BLOOD GLUCOSE, and reduce food intake.   From: MeSH
