Glicentin is a 69 amino acid N-terminal peptide derived from proglucagon (PG 1-69) by posttranslational processing in the intestine by intestinal L-cells.Glicentin can further be processed into oxyntomodulin, corresponding to proglucagon residues no 33-69. These peptides are released simultaneously upon stimulation. Glicentin is a pro-glucagon derived gut peptide that is released in the gut in response to feed intake. It is present in high levels in thecirculation after stimulation and is often a problem when measuring glucagonbecause of its shared sequence.
