Researching the Relationship Between Glucagon and Energy Homeostasis eBook

A thumbnail preview of our eBook Researching the Relationship Between Glucagon and Energy Homeostasis

Glucagon is a gut hormone generated as a result of post translational modifications during proglucagon processing. Research has demonstrated that glucagon has many physiological functions and plays a vital role in energy homeostasis.

Since glucagon directly affects insulin levels, it has become an important biomarker in diabetes and obesity research. However, specifically researching glucagon is a challenge due to the similarities between the hormone’s amino acid sequence and that of other peptides.

Download our eBook to learn more about the role glucagon plays in energy homeostasis and how these sequence similarities create analytical challenges for diabetes researchers.
