Insulin, Human Recombinant, Solution (5 mg/ml)
Insulin Human Recombinant Solution is commonly used to cultivate mammalian cell lines, such as Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells.
This chemically-defined Insulin Human Recombinant Solution is suitable for cell culture. The human insulin was expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Insulin is a two-chain polypeptide hormone produced by the β-cells of pancreatic islets. The molecular weight of insulin 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. Further, insulin inhibits the breakdown of glycogen, protein, and fat.
