Glucagon hormone

Free illustration of a glucagon hormone as a glass surface model with underlying deeper ribbon diagram on a white background. The peptide hormone glucagon is the counterpart of the insulin hormone, which is also produced in the pancreas. Glucagon is released as soon as theblood sugar level drops too low. It increases the blood sugar level by releasing the sugar reserves of the liver and stimulating the formation of new sugar. – This illustration is based on structural data from Blundell, T.L., Sasaki, K., Dockerill, S., Tickle, I.J.
