The Glucagon-like peptide-2 receptor (GLP2 Receptor) is a GPCR superfamily member closely related to the glucagon receptor (GLP1 receptor). This is a receptor for glucagon-like peptide 2. GLP2 is a 33-amino acid proglucagon peptide subproduct and the intestinal enteroendocrine cells release it. GLP2 stimulates intestinal growth and upregulates villus height in the small intestine. Moreover, GLP2 prevents intestinal hypoplasia resulting from total parenteral nutrition. GLP2R is present in the gut and in enteroendocrine cells in the intestinal tract. Green Fluorescent GLP-2 Receptor Cell Line from Innoprot allows the measurement of the activity and potency of ligands; such as GLP2.
