RelevanceGlucagon is a hormone that is secreted by alpha cells in the pancreas. Glucagon antagonizes insulin by converting glycogen to glucose in the liver and increasing blood sugar levels. Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP1), Glucagon-like peptide 2 (GLP2), VIP (vasoactive intestinal peptide) and PACAP (pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide) are in the glucagons hormone family. GLP1 is a transmitter in the central nervous system that regulates feeding and drinking behavior. GLP2 stimulates intestinal epithelial growth.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) - Anti-Glucagon antibody [EP3070] (ab92517)Image is courtesy of an anonymous AbReview.
Immunohistochemical analysis of PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded murine pancreatic tissue sections, labelling glucagon with ab92517 at a dilution of 1/2500 incubated for 18 hours at 4°C. Antigen retrival was performed through heat-mediated 10mM sodium citrate pH 6.0 incubation. Blocking was done with 5% serum for 1 hour at 25°C. The secondary was a donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugate at 1/400. Counterstaining is with DAPI (blue) against nuclear DNA.
