Structure of Human Arg-Insulin

Publication Abstract from PubMed

The N-terminal glycine of the A-chain in insulin is reported to be one of the residues that binds to the insulin receptor. Modifications near this region lead to variations in the biological activity of insulin. One such modification viz., an addition of an arginine at the N-terminal A-chain, was reported to possess two-thirds the activity of native insulin. The crystal structure of 2 zinc human arg (A0) insulin has been elucidated to 2A resolution to understand the mechanism of reduction in insulin activity. A conformational transition from T6 to T3R3(f) and a decrease in the surface accessibility of residues in the so called receptor binding region have been observed. The presence of arginine has also induced distortions in the A chain N-terminal helix. The subtle conformational alterations like decrease in surface accessibility, alterations in the charge surface and changes in the relative orientation of the two helices in the A chain may be responsible for the reduction in activity.

Disease

[INS_HUMAN] Defects in INS are the cause of familial hyperproinsulinemia (FHPRI) [MIM:176730].[1][2][3][4] Defects in INS are a cause of diabetes mellitus insulin-dependent type 2 (IDDM2) [MIM:125852]. IDDM2 is a multifactorial disorder of glucose homeostasis that is characterized by susceptibility to ketoacidosis in the absence of insulin therapy. Clinical fetaures are polydipsia, polyphagia and polyuria which result from hyperglycemia-induced osmotic diuresis and secondary thirst. These derangements result in long-term complications that affect the eyes, kidneys, nerves, and blood vessels.[5] Defects in INS are a cause of diabetes mellitus permanent neonatal (PNDM) [MIM:606176]. PNDM is a rare form of diabetes distinct from childhood-onset autoimmune diabetes mellitus type 1. It is characterized by insulin-requiring hyperglycemia that is diagnosed within the first months of life. Permanent neonatal diabetes requires lifelong therapy.[6][7] Defects in INS are a cause of maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 10 (MODY10) [MIM:613370]. MODY10 is a form of diabetes that is characterized by an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, onset in childhood or early adulthood (usually before 25 years of age), a primary defect in insulin secretion and frequent insulin-independence at the beginning of the disease.[8][9][10]

Function

[INS_HUMAN] Insulin decreases blood glucose concentration. It increases cell permeability to monosaccharides, amino acids and fatty acids. It accelerates glycolysis, the pentose phosphate cycle, and glycogen synthesis in liver.
