Caption: Insulin. Molecular ball-and-stick molecule of the hormone insulin, which is essential in maintaining the balance of glucose metabolism in the body. The atoms of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen are seen as spheres. Insulin is a protein that comprises 51 amino acids, which is produced in the pancreas by cells of the Islets of Langerhans. Insufficient production of insulin can lead to an accumulation of glucose in the blood.
