Glucagon-like peptide 1 increases glucose-dependent activity of the homeoprotein IDX-1 transactivating domain in pancreatic beta-cells.


Both glucose and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) stimulate insulin gene transcription in endocrine pancreatic beta-cells within the islets of Langerhans. The effects of glucose are mediated by the homeodomain transcription factor islet duodenum homeobox -1 (IDX-1) that binds to two adenine thymidine-rich (A1 and A2/3) motifs within the rat insulin promoter… (More)
