In addition to the previously developed recombinant modified human glucagon-like peptide 1 (rmglp1, Glypin), a recombinant modified human glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (RMGIP) has been obtained. A new universal reverse-phase HPLC technique has been proposed allowing quantitative analysis of rmGlp1 and rmGip separately and as part of a two-component preparation. The data show that the design of recombinant human rmGip according to the Glypine formula makes it possible to produce one-component and two-component preparations containing various rmGip and rmGlp1 protein ratios ranging from 1:0 to 20:1, using cell biomass samples mixed in predetermined proportions. Studies of human rmGip activity in a mouse model revealed reduced specific activity and signs of weak antagonistic effects. In this regard, there is a need for further study of human rmGip activity in a mouse model, including the use of alternative mouse or rat rmGip.
