Background: GIP (gastric inhibitory polypeptide) is released from the gastrointestinal tract, stimulates insulin secretion from pancreatic beta-cells, and plays a crucial role in the regulation of insulin secretion. Its receptor GIPR is expressed in the pancreas, stomach, small intestine, adipose tissue, adrenal cortex, pituitary, heart, testis, endothelial cells, bone, trachea, spleen, thymus, lung, kidney, thyroid, and several regions in the CNS. GIPR may have therapeutic potential in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Application: Functional assays
