Receptors glucagon

From Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

receptors, glucagon

cell surface receptors that bind glucagon with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behaviour of cells. Activation of glucagon receptors causes a variety of effects; the best understood is the initiation of a complex enzymatic cascade in the liver which ultimately increases the availability of glucose to body organs.
