Product Description
Insulin is a chemical messenger produced by the pancreas in response to food. These types of proteins are called hormones, traveling througout the body to communicate messages from one cell to another. Insulin's message to a cell describes the amount of circulating sugar traveling through the blood stream. When bound to an insulin receptor, glucose transporters are sequestered to the plasma membrane and begin pumping glucose into the cell. An important protein for sure, you can imagine the dangers of diseases like diabetes when levels of this hormone dramatically change. 

Model Description
This is a model of human insulin in it's stable macro-molecule hexomer form. It is colored by the protein's bFactor, or atomic temperature. Chains A and C are stained yellow, and Chains B and D are stained lite orange. The core of the macro-molecule shows the stable, cool binding region of each monomer, an important characteristic of natural human insulin.
