Glucagon-like Peptide 2 (1-34) (Human)
- Product Code: HOR-305
- Synonyms/Product Alternate Names: His-Ala-Asp-Gly-Ser-Phe-Ser-Asp-Glu-Met-Asn-Thr-Ile-Leu-Asp-Asn-Leu-Ala-Ala-Arg-Asp-Phe-Ile-Asn-Trp-Leu-Ile-Gln-Thr-Lys-Ile-Thr-Asp-Arg, GLP2, GLP-2, Glucagon Like Peptide-2.
GLP-2 functions as an intestinal growth factor, which stimulates intestinal epithelial growth. GLP2 is involved in diabetes-associated bowel growth. GLP2 enhances cell differentiation, playing a role as a cytokine and in tissue regeneration, and mediating cytoprotection. GLP2 is involved in numerous therapeutic applications. GLP2 regulates signaling pathways coupled to cell proliferation and cell death by apoptosis.
GLP-2 is produced by specific post-translational proteolytic cleavage of proglucagon GLP-2 is manufactured by the intestinal endocrine L cell and by several neurons in the central nervous system.
