The role of glucagon in eliciting hyperglycaemia has been studied extensively for more than 20 years. However, little has been learned about the specific targeted tissues and intracellular effects of glucagon since no specific causal interactions have been established between glucagon and the so called "glucagon-binding site". Indeed, glucagon and related hormones, such as glucagon-like peptide, glucoin-sulinotropic hormone and vasoactive intestinal peptide acting through different receptors… CONTINUE READING
