Gene Information

The protein encoded by this gene is actually a preproprotein that is cleaved into four distinct mature peptides. One of these glucagon is a pancreatic hormone that counteracts the glucose-lowering action of insulin by stimulating glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis. Glucagon is a ligand for a specific G-protein linked receptor whose signalling pathway controls cell proliferation. Two of the other peptides are secreted from gut endocrine cells and promote nutrient absorption through distinct mechanisms. Finally the fourth peptide is similar to glicentin an active enteroglucagon. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
