Insulin is one of seven known polypeptide hormones produced in the pancreas. Insulin, secreted by B cells of the islets of Langerhans, participates in glucose utilization, protein synthesis and in the formation and storage of neutral lipids. This antibody labels insulin and results aid in the classification of insulin-producing cells in normal and neoplastic tissue.
