      Description LisPro Insulin RIA
      Background Information Lispro insulin (Humalog®) is a synthetic human insulin analog showing drastic reductions of inter-molecular aggregations. It has a higher rate of absorption, higher peak serum levels and a shorter duration of action than regular human insulin following s

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene Summary After removal of the precursor signal peptide, proinsulin is post-translationally cleaved into two chains (peptide A and peptide B) that are covalently linked via two disulfide bonds. Binding of this mature form of insulin to the insulin receptor (INSR) stimulates glucose uptake. A variety of mutant alleles with changes in the coding region have been identified. There is a read-through gene, INS-IGF2, which overlaps with this gene at the 5' region and with the IGF2 gene at the 3' region.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt Summary FUNCTION: SwissProt: P01308 # Insulin decreases blood glucose concentration. It increases cell permeability to monosaccharides, amino acids and fatty acids. It accelerates glycolysis, the pentose phosphate cycle, and glycogen synthesis in liver.
      SIZE: 110 amino acids; 11981 Da
      SUBUNIT: Heterodimer of a B chain and an A chain linked by two disulfide bonds.
      DISEASE:SwissProt: P01308 # Defects in INS are the cause of familial hyperproinsulinemia [MIM:176730].
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P01308 ## Belongs to the insulin family.
