Insulin From Bacteria To You
Genetic Engineering - Seven Wonders of the Microbe World (6/7)
Insulin is a hormone which regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein. People with diabetes either do not have enough of their own insulin or have cells, which do not respond to insulin properly. This is a life-threatening condition. Bacterial synthesis made insulin cheaper. Today, most of the insulin is produced this way.
