GLP-2 functions as an intestinal growth factor, which stimulates intestinal epithelial growth. GLP2 is involved in diabetes-associated bowel growth. GLP2 enhances cell differentiation, playing a role as a cytokine and in tissue regeneration, and mediating cytoprotection. GLP2 is invloded numerous therapeutic applications. GLP2 regulates signaling pathways coupled to cell proliferation and cell death by apoptosis.GLP-2 is produced by specific post-translational proteolytic cleavage of proglucagon GLP-2 is manufactured by the intestinal endocrine L cell and by several neurons in the central nervous system.
GLP2, GLP-2, Glucagon Like Peptide-2.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The protein (1mg/ml) was lyophilized with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized GLP-2 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized GLP2 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GLP2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
