The glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an organic item gotten from the post-translational handling of proglucagon. It is emitted by unambiguous cell populaces in the gastrointestinal parcel (the enteroendocrine L cells), yet additionally by a few neuronal populaces in the hindbrain (the core of singular lot NTS: a significant district engaged with energy consumption). The physiological upgrade for the endogenous GLP-1 discharge is supplement ingestion and ensuing ascent in plasma glucose, which prompts a few overlap improvement in the circling GLP-1 contrasted with basal levels. This is quickly trailed by an incretin impact (see Glossary) that re-establishes the physiological degrees of glucose available for use [1,2].
The early GLP-1 is 37 amino acids long and has two normally bioactive structures available for use. The direct organic activities of local bioactive types of GLP-1 are intervened by the enactment of the GLP-1 receptor, which has a place with the family B of the G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Concentrates on mRNA and protein articulation show that GLP-1 receptors are disseminated all through a few tissues including the pancreas, kidney, stomach, heart and cerebrum. In the cerebrum, GLP-1 and additionally GLP-1 receptor mRNA have been recognized in certain locales of the thalamus, nerve center, hippocampal pyramidal neurons, cortex, cerebellar Purkinje cells and in the brainstem. The quick impacts of GLP-1 in the cells communicating GLP-1 receptors are credited to the ascent in intracellular cAMP levels and protein kinase A (PKA) enactment, which, in pancreatic β-cells, is straightforwardly liable for calcium convergence and insulin discharge. Notwithstanding the short half-existence of the endogenous GLP-1, the interchange of fringe and focal GLP-1 receptor flagging accomplishes glycaemic control and energy consumption by easing back gastric exhausting and decreasing caloric admission. In this unique circumstance, the stomach determined GLP-1 crosses the blood-mind obstruction (BBB) and ties to receptors in the circum ventricular organs of the brainstem, sending metabolic data to the neurons answerable for taking care of conduct. The revelation of the insulinotropic glucose-bringing down impacts of GLP-1 was a significant advancement that framed the reason for fostering the original of manufactured GLP-1 analogs and, in this way, their endorsement for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and corpulence in 2005 .
From that point forward, various DPP-4 corruption safe and long-acting manufactured GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) have been fostered that vary in synthetic changes and term of activity. In a nutshell, the shortacting medications incorporate lixisenatide and exenatide (Byetta), while the long-acting GLP-1RAs are exemplified by liraglutide, semaglutide, exenatide (Bydureon) and dulaglutide. The principal pharmacodynamic distinction between the two classes is that the short-acting agonists lower postprandial glucose by deferring gastric discharging, while the long-acting GLP-1RAs have a more grounded incretin impact. Since the short-acting GLP-1RAs are all the more quickly cleared from plasma, GLP-1 receptor enactment is likewise brief. Interestingly, the long-acting GLP-1RAs arrive at a consistent state fixation, with minor changes between the dosages, consequently causing a nonstop excitement of GLP-1 receptors. Because of this distinction, long-acting GLP- 1RAs are more viable in bringing down fasting plasma glucose and in improving glycaemic status contrasted with the short-acting mixtures. The disclosure of the insulinotropic glucose-bringing down impacts of GLP-1 was a significant advancement that shaped the reason for fostering the original of engineered GLP-1 analogs and, consequently, their endorsement for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and heftiness. From that point forward, various DPP-4 corruption safe and long-acting manufactured GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) have been fostered that contrast in compound adjustments and span of activity. In a word, the short-acting medications incorporate lixisenatide and exenatide (Byetta), while the long-acting GLP-1RAs are exemplified by liraglutide, semaglutide, exenatide (Bydureon) and dulaglutide .
Apart from the common animal models of neurodegeneration specified above, the neuroprotective effects of GLP1-RAs are also reported in some preclinical models of rare neurodegenerative diseases. Huntington’s disease is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorder caused by the CAG repeat expansions in the huntingtin (HTT) gene, and clinically manifests as hyperkinetic movement disorder and cognitive decline. In a transgenic mouse model overexpressing mutant human huntingtin (N171-82Q), once-daily subcutaneous delivery of exendin-4 reduced huntingtin aggregates in the cortex, along with improvements in motor performance and overall survival. Wolfram syndrome, caused by autosomal recessive inheritance of biallelic variations in the wolframin (WFS1) gene, is another rare neurodegenerative disorder that initially presents as diabetes mellitus. In a rat Wfs1 knockout model, subcutaneous delivery of liraglutide over 6 months attenuated neuroinflammation and significantly reduced the loss of retinal ganglion cells and optic nerve axons. However, we are not aware of any clinical trials with GLP-1RAs in Huntington’s disease or Wolfram syndrome .
The fundamental pharmacodynamic contrast between the two classes is that the short-acting agonists lower postprandial glucose by deferring gastric purging, while the long-acting GLP-1RAs have a more grounded incretin impact. Since the short-acting GLP-1RAs are all the more quickly cleared from plasma, GLP-1 receptor actuation is likewise fleeting. Interestingly, the longacting GLP-1RAs arrive at a consistent state focus, with minor vacillations between the dosages, hence causing a persistent feeling of GLP-1 receptors. Because of this distinction, long-acting GLP-1RAs are more compelling in bringing down fasting plasma glucose and in improving glycaemic status contrasted with the short-acting mixtures.
