For larger sizes, the number of freeze/thaws may be reduced by preparing aliquots, aliquots below 20 µL are not recommended. Please never store a kinase diluted. If properly stored at -80C, this product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of purchase.
Protein Form: Cytoplasmic
INSR is a receptor tyrosine kinase. Binding of insulin to the extracellular domain of INSR stimulates glucose uptake. INSR and IGF-1 receptors share major structural and functional similarity. The earliest cellular response to insulin stimulation is autophosphorylation of tyrosine in INSR. In humans, the INSR gene is located on chromosome 19. Defects in INSR are the cause of various insulin resistance syndromes and IGF-1R defects may also cause some forms of growth retardation.
