Co-agonist of glucagon and GLP-1 reduces cholesterol and improves insulin sensitivity independent of its effect on appetite and body weight in diet-induced obese C57 mice.


Dual agonism of glucagon and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptors reduce body weight without inducing hyperglycemia in rodents. However, the effect of a co-agonist on insulin sensitivity and lipid metabolism has not been thoroughly assessed. Diet-induced obese (DIO) mice received 0.5 mg·kg(-1) of co-agonist or 2.5 mg·kg(-1) of glucagon or 8 μg·kg(-1… (More)
