Insulin hormone – dark

Free illustration of an insulin hormone as a glass surface model with underlying deeper ribbon diagram on a dark background. Insulin is a hormone produced in the ß-cells of the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas. When insulin is secreted, the cells of the body are stimulated to absorb glucose from the blood, which lowers blood glucose levels. – This illustration is based on structural data from Hua, Q.X., Gozani, S.N., Chance, R.E., Hoffmann, J.A., Frank, B.H., Weiss, M.A.
