Insulin mRNA to Protein Kit©

Product Code: INSFK


Quantity: - +

Your students can connect protein synthesis to blood sugar regulation as they fold their own insulin model.

⚠  Warning


Insulin is an ideal protein to engage your students in homeostasis and protein synthesis, including post-translational processing of a protein. Students will:

  • Analyze a bioinformatics map to determine the nucleotide sequence
  • Explore how mRNA is translated into a precursor form
  • Discover how the precursor form is processed 
  • Fold the final, functional protein
Laminated maps, including a teacher mRNA map, are included. This is a perfect follow-up activity after students have used the Amino Acid Starter Kit© and the Map of the Human ß-Globin Gene©.
