# What is insulin's functions?

The major function of insulin is to counter the concerted action of a number of hyperglycemia-generating hormones and to maintain low blood glucose levels.

In addition to its role in regulating glucose metabolism, insulin stimulates lipogenesis, diminishes lipolysis, and increases amino acid transport into cells. Insulin also modulates transcription, altering the cell content of numerous mRNAs. It stimulates growth, DNA synthesis, and cell replication, effects that it holds in common with the insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and relaxin.

### Why draw up clear insulin before cloudy?

### Would the pI values of the animal insulins be the same as greater than or less than human insulins?

The pI values for all of the animal insulins would be similar to human insulin (with the exception of chicken and duck) because the amino acid changes all involved neutral amino acids. Chicken insulin would be more basic (because of the histidine substitution) whereas duck would be more acidic (because of the glutamate substitution.) Read More
