The proglucagon gene is expressed in both pancreatic A cell and intestinal L cell. Tissue-specific posttranslational processing of proglucagon by the prohormone convertase produced the different proglucagon derived peptides (PGDPs) in both pancreas and intestine. The most notable pancreatic PGDP is glucagon, whereas the L cell produces several structurally related peptides, including glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and GLP-2, as well as glicentin and oxyntomodulin, which contain glucagon sequence in their molecules. Among PGDPs, GLP-2 has recently been found to show intestinal epithelial proliferation.
