From After an insulin molecule proinsulin is produced, it hangs on an insulin crystal only in special locations where other insulin molecules have right angles, called kinks formed. At with atomic force microscopy, they discovered a new mechanism to by which insulin molecules attach themselves these these kinks They found that groups of insulin blocks large protrusions, called hills from Vekilov and Georgiou create the essence of this hill results in the creation of more kinks. Far more, in fact, than any other method the kink formation.. Peter Vekilov, associate professor of chemical engineering and Dimitra Georgiou, a recent doctoral graduate in chemical engineering, both in UH Cullen College of Engineering, are behind this breakthrough. Since insufficient insulin production in the pancreas is one of the main causes of adult-onset diabetes, are Vekilov Georgiou and study the process of how in the first place in the first place.
