Glucagon-Like Materials in Porcine and Rat Intestinal Mucosa
Extracts of gastrointestinal tissue contain glucagon-like immunoreactive (GLI) materials with molecular weights varying between 2000 and 30,000. Some of them react with antisera specific for the C-terminal, others with antisera specific for the N-terminal portion of the glucagon molecule. In response to perfusion with glucose the serosal surface of rat small intestine releases increased amounts of some GLI fractions.
