Transient, early release of glucagon-like peptide-1 during low rates of intraduodenal glucose delivery.

Abstract

CONTEXT The "incretin" hormones, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP), account for some 60% of the stimulation of insulin by oral glucose, but the determinants of their secretion from the small intestine are poorly understood. Cells which release GIP (K cells) are localized to the proximal small intestine… (More)
