Liraglutide is a potent agonist of the glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor and a synthetic derivative of GLP-1 (7-37) (Item No. 24887) that contains a palmitic acid group.1 It increases cAMP accumulation in CHO cells expressing the human GLP-1 receptor (EC50 = 61 pM). Liraglutide (100-1,000 nM) inhibits cytokine- and free fatty acid-induced apoptosis of primary neonatal rat pancreatic β-cells in vitro by greater than 95 and 50%, respectively, effects that are blocked by the GLP-1 receptor antagonist exendin-3 (9-39) (Item No. 19890) and the PI3 kinase inhibitor wortmannin (Item No. 10010591).2 In a rat model of obesity induced by supplemental dietary candy, liraglutide (0.2 mg/kg, s.c., twice per day) decreases calorie intake, shifts food preference to a higher ratio of chow to candy, reverses weight and fat gains, and increases insulin sensitivity.3 Formulations containing liraglutide have been used as adjuncts in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and for chronic weight management in overweight or obese adults.
