Insulin antibodies are important for studying insulin related diseases such as diabetes. Insulin is a vitally important peptide hormone produced in the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas. Insulin is one of the main regulators of carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the mammalian body. It is synthesized in significant quantities only in beta cells of the pancreas and is secreted primarily in response to elevated blood concentrations of glucose. It also prevents the use of fat as an energy source by inhibiting the release of glucagon. When the level of blood glucose falls, secretion of insulin stops, and the liver releases glucose into the blood.
When insulin regulation fails as a result of poor diet or pancreatic injury or disease, diabetes mellitus can occur leading to serious medical complications in the form of Type 1 Diabetes where insulin production stops or Type 2 diabetes where insulin is still produced but is not used effectively by the body. Insulin is administered as treatment in both cases.
Fitzgerald Industries offers a large range of insulin antibodies in monoclonal and polyclonal formats as well as conjugated to most commonly used epitope tags such as fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), biotin, horseradish peroxidase (HRP), alkaline phosphatase (AP) and more. Our insulin antibodies are the ideal choice for the diagnostic and research laboratory and are highly rated for use in a range of immunoassays and other techniques.
Some of our most popular Insulin antibodies include:
Insulin antibody - This monoclonal Insulin antibody is one of our biggest sellers and offers excellent results in ELISA assays and Immunohistochemistry.
Insulin antibody - This purified rabbit polyclonal Insulin antibody was purified by affinity chromatography and is perfect for use in Western Blot applications.
