Glucagon is a hormone that is secreted by α 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 glucagon's hormone family. GLP1 is a transmitter in the central nervous system that regulates feeding and drinking behavior. GLP2 stimulates intestinal epithelial growth.
Anti-Glucagon Polyclonal is used for immunostaining of acetone-fixed frozen and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections.

|Antibody Type||Polyclonal Antibody|
|Application Notes||Anti-Glucagon Polyclonal is used for immunostaining of acetone-fixed frozen and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections.|
|Base Catalog Number||11184|
|Immunogen||Porcine pancreatic Glucagon/BSA|
|Pack Size||250 µL|
|Solubility||Soluble in Water|
|Specificity||Reactive in human and rat. The antiserum cross-reacts with human and rat tissues. It reacts with glucagon in the α-cells of the pancreatic islets and in the endocrine cells of the gut and in neurons in the brain.|
