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.

Formali-fixed, paraffin-embedded rat pancreas tissue stained for Glucagon using ab10988 at 10 µg/ml in immunohistochemical analysis.
ab10988 staining Glucagon in rat pancreatic tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections).
Tissue was fixed in paraformaldehyde, blocked with 2% serum for 1 hour at 25°C, then incubated with ab10988 at a 1/200 dilution for 1 hour at 25°C. The secondary used was a donkey anti-mouse IgG (H+L) conjugated to Texas Red, used at a 1/250 dilution. Nuclei counterstained with DAPI, green is staining for insulin.
