Abstract

Glucagon is a hormone with important effects on blood glucose regulation. This study hasutilized the stable glucagon receptor antagonists, desHis1Pro4Glu9-glucagon anddesHis1Pro4Glu9(Lys12PAL)-glucagon, to evaluate the effects of sustained inhibition ofglucagon receptor signalling in normal mice. Twice-daily injection of either analogue for10 days had no effect on food intake, body weight and non-fasting plasma glucoseconcentrations. However, insulin levels were significantly raised (P
