The physiological role of glucagon-like peptide-1 in the regulation of renal function.

Abstract

Glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an incretin hormone constantly secreted from the intestine at low basal levels in the fasted state; plasma concentrations rise rapidly after nutrient ingestion. Upon release, GLP-1 exerts insulinotropic effects via a G protein-coupled receptor, stimulation of adenylyl cyclase, and cAMP generation. Although primarily… (More)
