insulin 2

Gene Summary

Predicted to enable several functions, including identical protein binding activity; signaling receptor binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including negative regulation of catabolic process; positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and positive regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to act upstream of or within several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; intrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway in response to endoplasmic reticulum stress; and positive regulation of phosphorylation. Located in extracellular space. Colocalizes with secretory granule. Used to study hypertension. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in diabetic retinopathy; glucose metabolism disease (multiple); insulinoma; and pancreatic cancer. Orthologous to human INS (insulin).
