Glucagon-like peptide-1 inhibits gastric emptying via vagal afferent-mediated central mechanisms.
Exogenous administration of glucagon-like peptide-1-(7-36) amide (GLP-1), an insulinotropic hormone, inhibits gastric emptying and acid secretion in humans. The role of GLP-1 as a regulator ofExpand

Mediators of glucagon-like peptide 2-induced blood flow: Responses in different vascular sites
The aims of the present study were: to characterize the mechanisms of hemodynamic alterations induced by GLP-2, and, to compare the responses elicited in the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) to otherExpand

Design of a front-end integrated circuit for 3D acoustic imaging using 2D CMUT arrays
Integration of front-end electronics with 2D capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) arrays has been a challenging issue due to the small element size and large channel count. WeExpand

Glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) is involved in the central modulation of fecal output in rats.
In addition to its insulinotropic action, exogenously administered glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) inhibits gastropancreatic motility and secretion via central pathways. The aims of the present studyExpand

GLP-1 and GLP-2 act in concert to inhibit fasted, but not fed, small bowel motility in the rat
Small bowel motility was studied in rats at increasing (1-20 pmol/kg/min) intravenous doses of either glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) or glucagon-like peptide-2 (GLP-2) alone, or in combination inExpand
