Evolutionary expression of glucose-dependent-insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP).

Abstract

Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) is a mammalian incretin hormone released into the circulation following nutrient ingestion. We examined the functional evolution of GIP and its relationship with insulin to delineate their respective roles in promoting nutrient efficiency. Expression patterns were examined in the sea lamprey (Petromyzon… (More)
