    Abstract: Genomic insulin is located on the short arm of chromosome 11 in human genome. It is a well studied polypeptide hormone, consists of 110 amino acids which start with signaling peptide of 1-24 amino acids, B-chain of 25-54 amino acids, C-peptide of 55-89 amino acids and end with A-chain of 90-110 amino acids. Insulin, produced by the beta cell of the... Show More
