Gene: Gcg (glucagon) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gcg
Name: glucagon
Description: Predicted to have glucagon receptor binding activity and hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including intracellular signal transduction; negative regulation of apoptotic process; and positive regulation of protein modification process. Localizes to the cytoplasm and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and prediabetes syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; gut; and urogenital ridge. Orthologous to human GCG (glucagon).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GLP-1; Glu; glucagon-like peptide I; PPG
