Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B
Glucagon is a member of a multigene family comprising Secretin, Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP), Gastric Inhibitory Peptide (GIP) and others like Glicentin and Oxyntomodulin (OXM), which differs from glucagon by C-terminal octapeptide.  The glucagon precursor contains at least 3 intervening sequences that divide the protein-coding portion into 4 regions corresponding to the signal peptide and part of the N-terminal peptide, the remainder of the N-terminal peptide and glucagon, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP1), and GLP2.
OXM, a 37aa peptide contains the glucagon sequence extended by a C-terminal basic octapeptide, its primary structure is identical in all mammals except in pig and cattle. OXM is released from the gut during digestion, together with glicentin another octapeptide containing molecule. It is considered as a putative physiological regulator of gastric acid secretion, it inhibits histamine.
