This beautiful alpha carbon backbone insulin model engages students as they investigate the story of homeostasis, spanning the molecular to the organismal scale. The colors of the Insulin Model© coordinate with the Insulin mRNA to Protein Kit©.
- Discover the A and B chains of the peptide hormone
- Examine how the chains are stabilized by two disulfide bonds
- Observe the cysteine side chains that make the disulfide bonds
