General description

Islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP), also known as amylin, is a 37 amino acid peptide hormone co-secreted with insulin from the pancreatic Β-cells. IAPP is processed from an 89-amino acid precursor pro-islet amyloid polypeptide (proIAPP) in pancreatic Β-cells that undergoes complex posttranslational modifications including protease cleavage, C-terminal amidation and formation of an intramolecular disulfide bridge to produce the mature IAPP.


synthetic peptide corresponding to a sequence at the N-terminus of human pro-IAPP (GeneID 3375), conjugated to KLH.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP)/Amylin plays a role in glycemic regulation by slowing gastric emptying and promoting satiety, thereby preventing post-prandial spikes in blood glucose levels. The human IAPP (20-29) region that has been found to be essential to amyloid formation is thought to be a key factor in the initiation of amyloid aggregation. Amyloid deposits deriving from IAPP are commonly found in pancreatic islets of patients suffering of T2DM, or containing an insulinoma cancer. IAPP, like β-amyloid peptide associated with Alzheimer′s disease, can induce apoptosis in insulin producing β-cells, an effect that is relevant to the development of type 2 diabetes.
