Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1)(7-36) amide, a member of the family of glucagon and related peptides, synthesized by intestinal L cells, has a well-defined distribution in rat brain. In addition, specific GLP-1(7-36) amide receptors have also been localized in some regions of the brain, which suggests that this novel gut-brain peptide has a role in brain… CONTINUE READING
