Gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is part of the incretin family of hormones that regulate blood glucose levels. GIP lowers blood glucose levels by stimulating an increase in insulin levels. As such, GIP is an essential regulator of insulin secretion and glucose homeostasis. It is a high affinity agonist of its receptor (EC50 = 0.81 nM) that inhibits gastric acid secretion and stimulates pancreatic insulin release in response to glucose. GIP has also been shown to affect lipid metabolism and exhibit mitogenic and antiapoptotic effects in pancreatic β-cells. Also referred to as Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide
