Supplementary Material

The promoter, all 13 exons and intron-exon boundaries of the GLP1R gene (GenBank accession number AL035690) were amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using specific primer sets in Supplementary Table 1. The Titanium Taq DNA Polymerase (Clontech Laboratories, Inc., Mountain View, CA, USA) was used in PCR. The PCR amplification conditions consisted of initial denaturation at 95°C for 5 minutes followed by 40 cycles at 95°C for 45 seconds, annealing temperature for 45 seconds and 72°C for 45 seconds, with one additional cycle at 72°C for 10 minutes.
