Glucagon is excreted by alpha cells in the islet of langerhans, the endocrine part of the pancreas. The function of glucagon is to raise the blood glucose level through conversion of glycogen into glucose in the liver. this function is the opposite function of insulin which lowers the blood glucose level.
