Insulin is a secreted peptide hormone that elicits metabolic effects such as increases in glucose uptake and glycogen synthesis leading to a decrease in blood glucose concentration. Insulin is first formed as a precursor molecule, preproinsulin, which is later cleaved to proinsulin and finally to the mature insulin hormone. Insulin-like peptides (INSL proteins), also designated Relaxinlike factors, are members of the insulin family, which regulate cell growth, metabolism and tissue-specific functions. INSL1-7 are mostly secreted proteins that are expressed mainly in testis, placenta, uterus or prenatal tissues. INSL4 is a 139 amino acid secreted protein expressed in the placenta, uterus and in fetal perichondrium. It may play an important role in the regulation of bone formation and in trophoblast development.
