GIP

The rarest form of interstitial pneumonia which is now regarded as a hard metal pneumoconiosis

GIP

1. Gastric inhibitory polypeptide Gastrin inhibitory principle A 43-residue insulinotropic polypeptide hormone of the incretin family produced by the pancreas, that is secreted in response to oral–but not parenteral administration of nutrients–eg, glucose and lipids. See Incretin.
2. General insertional protein.
3. Giant cell interstitial pneumonia, see there.

At rs2291725 when allele T is replaced by allele C, there will be a missense mutation, ser103gly, which may affect the structure and function of GIP. A recent GWAS (genome-wide association study) revealed that rs46522 was a CAD risky SNP [15].

In order to study the contribution of aggregated offer to the increase of GIP we are going to start from GIP that represents the final result of the production activities of resident productive units, calculated owing to the production method with the relation: GIP = GVA + PT + CT--PS, where: GIP = gross internal product (market prices); GVA = gross value added (basic prices); PT = products taxes; CT = customs taxes (taxes upon imports); PS = products subsidies (The National Statistics Institute, Statistics Year Book, 2008).

Specially structure and function deterioration almost in 50% of [beta]-cell mass is observed in type 2 diabetes mellitus, but also incretin metabolism is abnormal because there is an evident decrease on incretin effect [5, 6], that is the reason of the reduction in nutrient-mediated secretion of glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) [7], this effect leads to an inappropriately elevated glucagon concentrations that results in hyperglycemia [3, 4].
