Jump to: navigation, search

The glucagon receptor family[1] is a group of closely related G-protein coupled receptors which include:

The first three receptors bind closely related peptide hormones (glucagon, glucagon-like peptide-1, glucagon-like peptide-2) derived from the proglucagon polypeptide. The last receptor binds gastric inhibitory polypeptide.
