amylin

Natural hormone produced by pancreatic beta-cells that moderates the glucose-lowering effects of insulin. One of the calcitonin family peptides.

Amylin

Amylin, or Islet Amyloid Polypeptide (IAPP), is a 37-residue peptide hormone. It is cosecreted with insulin from the pancreatic ╬▓-cells in the ratio of approximately 100:1. Amylin plays a role in glycemic regulation by slowing gastric emptying and promoting satiety, thereby preventing post-prandial spikes in blood glucose levels. IAPP is processe...

amylin

Type: Term Pronunciation: am′i-lin Definitions: 1. A 37-amino acid peptide that is cosecreted with insulin from the pancreatic β-cell. Many of its biologic activities mimic those of calcitonin gene-related peptide, which is not a β-cell peptide. In patients with Type 1 diabetes, amylin is essentially absent from the plasma. The plas...
