Insulin (C27C9) Rabbit mAb (Pacific Blue™ Conjugate) detects endogenous levels of total insulin protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the sequence of human insulin.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Pacific Blue™ fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct flow cytometry in human and mouse cells. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated antibody Insulin (C27C9) Rabbit mAb #3014.
The maintenance of glucose homeostasis is an essential physiological process that is regulated by hormones. An elevation in blood glucose levels during feeding stimulates insulin release from pancreatic β cells through a glucose sensing pathway (1). Insulin is synthesized as a precursor molecule, proinsulin, which is processed prior to secretion. A- and B-peptides are joined together by a disulfide bond to form insulin, while the central portion of the precursor molecule is cleaved and released as the C-peptide. Insulin stimulates glucose uptake from blood into skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Insulin deficiency leads to type 1 diabetes mellitus (2).
