After removal of the precursor signal peptide proinsulin is post-translationally cleaved into three peptides: the B chain and A chain peptides which are covalently linked via two disulfide bonds to form insulin and C-peptide. Binding of insulin to the insulin receptor (INSR) stimulates glucose uptake. A multitude of mutant alleles with phenotypic effects have been identified. There is a read-through gene INS-IGF2 which overlaps with this gene at the 5' region and with the IGF2 gene at the 3' region. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
