Gastric inhibitory polypeptide, GIP, Incretin hormone.
Gastric Inhibitory Polypeptide (GIP) which is a significant hormone of the enteroinsular axis has a functional profile of possible therapeutic value for type 2 diabetes. GIP is an important incretin hormone released into the circulation from endocrine K-cells of the duodenum and jejunum after ingestion of food1. GIP was evaluated for his ability to elevate cellular cAMP production. GIP promotes plasma triglyceride clearance in response to oral fat loading.
GIP Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 155 amino acids (22-153) and having a molecular mass of 17.3kDa. GIP is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The GIP solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0), 50% glycerol 0.1M NaCl and 2mM DTT.
