Exendins

Title: Exendins
Literature References: Bioactive peptides isolated from the venom of Heloderma suspectum Helodermatidae (Gila monster) and H. horridum (Mexican beaded lizard). Carboxy-amidated peptides containing 39 amino acid residues; differ only at positions 2 and 3. Interact with mammalian receptors for glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a physiological regulator of insulin secretion, and exhibit similar activities. Structurally related peptides known as helospectin and helodermin have also been isolated from venom of these species and were considered exendins-1 and -2 but differ in bioactivity.
