A peptide of 36 or 37 amino acids that is derived from proglucagon and mainly produced by the INTESTINAL L cells. GLP-1(1-37 or 1-36) is further N-terminally truncated resulting in GLP-1(7-37) or GLP-1-(7-36) which can be amidated. These GLP-1 peptides are known to enhance glucose-dependent insulin release, suppress GLUCAGON release and gastric emptying, lower blood glucose, and reduce food intake.
