GLP-1 (9-36) is the result of the rapid degradation of GLP-1 (7-36)amide, by the enzyme dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-4), which is widely expressed in a number of sites, including the endothelial cells of small gut arterioles. GLP-1 (9-36) accounts for the majority of GLP-1 that reaches the system circulation. Whereas GLP-1 (7-36) amide stimulates glucose-dependent insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, GLP-1(9-36)amide administration had no effect on glucose clearance or insulin secretion in humans. GLP-1(9-36)amide however was shown to exert cardioprotective actions in rodent hearts.
