X-ray analysis, circular dichroism, receptor binding and biological potencies of chemically modified insulins suggest that the conformation of the insulin molecule is critical to the formation of both the zinc insulin hexamer and the insulin-receptor complex. Results are consistent with an insulin receptor-binding region including many of the hydrophobic(More)
The relevance of the crystal structure of the polypeptide hormones, insulin, glucagon and human placental lactogen to conformation and flexibility in solution and to receptor binding is considered. X-ray studies for crystal forms of glucagon, human placental lactogen and three insulin derivatives (A1 acetyl insulin, A1-t-butoxy carbonyl insulin and A1(More)
