General description

Insulin is a polypeptide hormone mainly secreted from pancreas when glucose level changes in the plasma. It is an anabolic hormone and enhances the generation of storage substances, for instance glycogen, fat and protein. It also induces glucose uptake by peripheral tissues, thereby controlling glucose levels in the plasma. Its main sites of action are liver, adipose tissue and muscle.


Insulin-FITC labeled human has been used in primary endothelial cells from human adipose tissue microvasculature (HAMEC) to study insulin transcytosis.

Pancreatic β cell function is compromised in diabetes and is typically assessed by measuring insulin secretion during glucose stimulation. Traditionally, measurement of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion involves manual liquid handling, heterogeneous stimulus delivery, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays that require large numbers
