ABS 021-04-02 detects GIP in human samples.
ABS 021-04-02 has been successfully used in ELISA and immunohistochemistry procedures.
ABS 021-04-02 immunogen is a synthetic human gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GHP) coupled to a carrier protein.
NOTE: Concentration is lot-dependent and can vary from 0.85-1.15 mg/mL
Human gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is a 42-amino-acid peptide belonging to the glucagon-secretin family of peptide hormones. It is secreted by endocrine cells in the duodenal mucosa and stimulates glucose-dependent insulin secretion as well as GLP-1 release from more distal endocrine (L) cells in the intestinal mucosa.
GIP shows amino-acid sequence similarities to glucagon, GLP-1 and GLP-2 (from approximately 50% identity for glucagon to 30% identity for GLP-2).
