Elevated levels of pancreatic polypeptide in obese-hyperglycemic mice.

Abstract

The concentration and distribution of pancreatic polypeptide (PP) was studied in hyperglycemic obese (ob/ob) mice and homozygous (+/+) controls. By radioimmunoassay, the concentration of PP in the pancreas of ob/ob mice was greater both in the duodenal lobe (70.7%) and in the body and tail (66.3%) when compared to identical areas of control pancreases… (More)
