Solubility: Soluble to 5 mg/ml in water
Glucagon is a peptide hormone produced by the pancreas that opposes the action of insulin in peripheral tissues, predominantly the liver, where the insulin:glucagon ratio determines the intricate control of gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis. The action of glucagon in the liver is complex and involves coordinate regulation of transcription factors and signal transduction networks which converge on regulation of amino acid, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. Glucagon also regulates the rate of glucose production, notably under conditions of insulin suppression, such as Diabetes mellitus.
Each peptide comes complete with the following information:
a QC summary sheet
two reverse phase HPLC profiles to verify purity
mass spectrometry to verify molecular weight
amino acid analysis to verify composition
We use outside laboratories to provide the amino acid analysis and mass spectrometry. This third-party verification allows us to remain objective and has helped us achieve an excellent record of delivering top quality peptides since 1993.
