Insulin from porcine pancreas has been used:
  • for culturing of the primary tumors obtained from mice and porcine preantral follicles
  • to characterize hormones involved in postnatal chicken preadipocyte differentiation in vitro
  • to check the reduction ability of the Escherichia coli thiol disulfide exchange proteins (DsbA, DsbC, DsbG) towards insulin

Biochem/physiol Actions

Two-chain polypeptide hormone produced by the β-cells of pancreatic islets. Its molecular weight is ~5800 Da. The α and β chains are joined by two interchain disulfide bonds. The α chain contains an intrachain disulfide bond. Insulin regulates the cellular uptake, utilization, and storage of glucose, amino acids, and fatty acids and inhibits the breakdown of glycogen, protein, and fat.
