Transcript of "Insulin"

  1. 1. Insulin<br />Adopted by: Samantha Barton<br />
  2. 2. Elements within Insulin<br />Insulin is primarily made up of:<br />
  3. 3. Subunits of Insulin<br />Insulin has more than one non reducible form <br />The alpha: Mr=135,000<br />The beta: Mr=95,000<br />The gamma: Mr=210,000<br />The two major parts of the molecule are the alpha and beta particles while the gamma particles are minor.<br />
  4. 4. Functional Groups of Insulin<br />Insulin is made up of 51 <br />amino acids<br />
  5. 5. Amino Acid Chart<br />
  6. 6. Organic Compounds of Insulin<br />Insulin is a protein<br />
  7. 7. General Function of Amino Acids<br />Amino Acids serve primarily as the building blocks for proteins (including insulin)<br />Order of the amino acids determines function and shape of protein<br />Proteins are simply a long chain of amino acids, without water due to peptide bonding<br />
  8. 8. Function of Insulin<br />Insulin is a hormone located within the pancreas<br />Helps to regulate the body’s blood sugar after meals<br />If a blood sugar is high, more insulin will be released, if blood sugar is low, less insulin will be released<br />Insulin gene consists of two separate chains of amino acids, A and B<br />
  9. 9. Adoption Process<br />Insulin is necessary to all of our bodies<br />When one’s body does not produce insulin properly, we become diabetic<br />I will fuel my body with a proper diet in order to keep my insulin production healthy and normal<br />I will also have regular check-ups making sure that my sugar levels maintain healthy<br />
