Peptide YY inhibits the insulinotropic action of gastric inhibitory polypeptide.

Peptide YY (PYY) is released from the gut after ingestion of fat or after a meal. The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effect of PYY on gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP)-stimulated insulin release in conscious dogs with gastric and duodenal fistulas. In control experiments, 6 dogs received GIP (400 pmol/kg, i.v., for 1 h) and glucose (0.6… CONTINUE READING
