GLP-2 receptor expression in excitatory and inhibitory enteric neurons and its role in mouse duodenum contractility.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP-2), a nutrient-responsive hormone, exerts various actions in the gastrointestinal tract that are mediated by a G-protein coupled receptor called GLP-2R. A little information is available on GLP-2R expression in enteric neurons and nothing on the interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC). METHODS We investigated presence and… (More)
