GeneCards Summary for GLP1R Gene
GLP1R (Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GLP1R include pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis and fasting hypoglycemia. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and glucagon receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is VIPR2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GLP1R Gene
This is a receptor for glucagon-like peptide 1. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylyl cyclase
Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptors are members of the glucagon receptor family that also includes glucagon, GLP-2, secretin, GHRH and GIP receptors. GLP-1 receptors are found both centrally and peripherally. GLP-1 receptors mediate the effects of the incretin axis.
