  • Glucagon is a peptide hormone, produced by alpha cells of the pancreas, that raises the concentration of glucose in the bloodstream. Its effect is opposite that of insulin, which lowers the glucose concentration. Glucagon is a 29-amino acid peptide hormone that is synthesized in pancreatic α cells from the proglucagon precursor by prohormone convertase 2 (PC2). The primary structure of glucagon is identical in most mammals, with the exception of some amino acid differences in guinea pigs and non-mammalian vertebrates.
