1

beta cells of islets of lagerhands release what

Insulin (70% of total secretions)

2

glucagon secreted from where

alpha cells of islets

3

delta cells of the islet of langerhans secrete what

somatostatin

4

f cells of the islets of langerhans secrete what

pancreatic polypeptide

5

what is GLP 1

glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone released by the small intestine in response to an oral glucose load


Increasing GLP-1 levels, either by the administration of an analogue (glucagon-like peptide-1, GLP-1 mimetics, e.g. exenatide) or inhibiting its breakdown (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 ,DPP-4 inhibitors - the gliptins), is therefore the target of two recent classes of drug.

6

Cholecystokinin causes enzyme secretion
