||Recombinant Human Islet Amyloid Polypeptide produced inE.coli,is a non-glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 37 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 3903.4 Dalton.
||Amylin, or Islet Amyloid Polypeptide (IAPP), is a 37-residue peptide hormonesecreted by pancreatic-cellsat the same time as insulin (in a roughly 100:1 ratio). Amylin functions as part of the endocrinepancreasand contributes to glycemic control. Although amylin"s complete function may not yet be known, it has been shown to slow gastric emptying, promote satiety, inhibit secretion of glucagonduring hyperglycemia, and therein reduce the total insulindemand. As insulin lowers blood glucose and glucagon raises blood glucose, amylin supports the stability of blood glucose levels in effect by slowing the rate that digested glucose enters the bloodstream. Rodent amylin knockoutsare known to fail to achieve the normal anorexiafollowing food consumption.
