1 Acute insulin and C-peptide responses to intravenous pulses of different glucose amounts (0.33 g/kg and 5 g) and arginine (3 g) were significantly reduced by beta-endorphin infusion (P less than .01). Arginine proopiomelanocortin Homo sapiens
2 beta-Endorphin also inhibited glucose suppression of glucagon levels and augmented the glucagon response to arginine. Arginine proopiomelanocortin Homo sapiens
