Description

A precursor of insulin, with a molecular weight of 8,000 to 10,000. It has minimum hormonal activity and is converted to insulin by removal of the connecting C peptide, leaving the two (A and B) chains. From every molecule of proinsulin, one molecule of insulin plus one molecule of C Peptide are produced.
