Glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP-2) is an intestinotropic peptide that binds to GLP-2 receptor (GLP-2R), a class-B G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). Few synthetic agonists have been reported so far for class-B GPCRs. Here, we report the first scaffold compounds of ago-allosteric modulators for human GLP-2R, derived from methyl(More)
Glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP-2) is an intestinotropic peptide that binds to GLP-2 receptor (GLP-2R), a class-B G protein-coupled receptor. The GLP-2R antagonist GLP-2(3-33) has relatively high partial agonistic activity, and there are as yet no ideal known potent GLP-2R antagonists. We therefore prepared several truncated forms of human GLP-2 and(More)
Glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP-2) is an intestinotropic peptide that binds to GLP-2 receptor (GLP- 2R), a class-B G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) coupled with Gα(s). Few small-molecule agonists had been reported for class-B GPCRs, but we recently reported the first scaffold compounds of ago-allosteric modulators for human GLP-2R. Methyl(More)
Because neurons are difficult to obtain from humans, generating functional neurons from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) is important for establishing physiological or disease-relevant screening systems for drug discovery. To examine the culture conditions leading to efficient differentiation of functional neural cells, we investigated the(More)
