Abbreviated name: GLP-2 (3-33)
Compound class: Endogenous peptide in human, mouse or rat
Comment: Mouse GLP-2(3-33) is different from human at residues 9 (Serine) and 17 (Threonine) and from rat at one residue in position 9 (Serine).
GLP-2(3-33) is the result of N-terminal dipeptide proteolytic cleavage of GLP-2(1-33) by serine protease dipeptidyl peptidase IV. GLP-2(3-33) is able to interact with GLP-2 receptors even though it remains unclear whether GLP-2(3-33) has a biological activity in vivo or may affect the biological activity of GLP-2(1-33)
