Anti-Mouse Proinsulin Polyclonal Antibody

Insulin is produced in a step-wise process. Preproinsulin is a biologically inactive precursor that consists of an N-terminal signal peptide followed by the proinsulin molecule. Removal of the signal peptide by signal peptidases results in proinsulin alone. Proinsulin contains the A-chain, B-chain and a 31-amino-acid Connecting peptide or C-peptide. The C-peptide is positioned between the A-chain and the B-chain and functions to connect them. The C-peptide is removed once proinsulin is processed into insulin.

Anti-mouse proinsulin polyclonal antibody, also known as anti-insulin 1 C-peptide, is frequently used to study the structure, function and metabolism of insulin as well as proinsulin. The anti-insulin 1 C-peptide can also be used for immunocytochemistry and for immunohistochemical studies of paraffin-embedded or frozen tissue sections. Mouse proinsulin polyclonal antibody is generated in Guinea pig immunized with the KLH-conjugated mouse proinsulin peptide (71-84) [SPGDLQTLALEVAR].
