Biochemical Physiological Actions : Two-chain polypeptide hormone produced by the ß-cells of pancreatic islets. Its molecular weight is ~5800 Da. The a and ß chains are joined by two interchain disulfide bonds. The a 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.
