GLP-2 functions as an intestinal growth factor， which stimulates intestinal epithelial growth. GLP2 is involved in diabetes-associated bowel growth. GLP2 enhances cell differentiation， playing a role as a cytokine and in tissue regeneration， and mediating cytoprotection. GLP2 is invloded numerous therapeutic applications. GLP2 regulates signaling pathways coupled to cell proliferation and cell death by apoptosis.
GLP-2 is produced by specific post-translational proteolytic cleavage of proglucagon GLP-2 is manufactured by the intestinal endocrine L cell and by several neurons in the central nervous system.
Glucagon Like Peptide-2 contains 34 amino acids having a molecular mass of 3922.38 Dalton.
Lyophilized GLP2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks， should be stored desiccated below -18℃. Upon reconstitution GLP2 should be stored at 4℃ between 2-7 days and for future use below
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein （0.1% HSA or BSA）.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
