Biological Activity

Noncompetitive glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor antagonist (IC50 = 0.65 - 0.69 μM). Displays >40-fold selectivity for GLP-1 receptor over glucagon receptors. Blocks activity of Exendin-4 (Cat. No. 1933) in potentiating insulin secretion from primary mouse pancreatic islets in vitro. Decreases blood insulin and increases blood glucose levels in vivo. Brain penetrant and orally bioavailable.
