Background Information

INS is a peptide hormone, produced by beta cells of the pancreas, and is central to regulating carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. It participates in glucose utilization, protein synthesis and in the formation and storage of neutral lipids. INS is synthesized as a precursor molecule, proinsulin, which is processed prior to secretion. A- and B-peptides are joined together by a disulfide bond to form INS, while the central portion of the precursor molecule is cleaved and released as the C-peptide. Defects in INS results in type 1 diabetes mellitus.
