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.
Insulin Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 109 amino acids (25-110 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 11.8kDa. Insulin is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Insulin protein solution (0.5mg/ml) containing Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% Glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Measured in a cell proliferation assay using MCF7 human breast cancer cell. The ED50 for this effect is less or equal to 4 ug/ml.
