Abstract

GLP-1 and GIP are the two key incretin hormones that regulate post-prandial glucose homeostasis. Furthermore, potent enzyme-resistant GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonists such as N-AcGIP and exendin-4 have now been developed. In the present study the effects of stable incretins, exendin-4 and N-AcGIP alone and in combination were examined in mice with high fat feeding induced glucose intolerance. Daily s.c. injections of exendin-4 (50 nmol/kg bw) for 12 days restored glycaemic control and significantly (P
