Insulin is a polypeptide hormone produced in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans that has a molecular weight of ~5800 Da. Insulin primarily regulates the uptake and storage of glucose in cellular systems. It also plays a related role in the metabolism of certain amino acids and fatty acids. Bovine insulin is remarkably similar to human insulin, differing in molecular structure by only three amino acid residues.
