Figure 8 The structure of three insulin analogs. The human insulin molecule, derived from its proinsulin precursor, consists of an A chain and a B chain. The insulin lispro molecule has a proline residue at position B28 that has been transposed with the lysine residue at position B29 of the B chain of the human insulin molecule. Insulin aspart has a B28 amino acid proline substitution with aspartic acid. In the insulin glargine molecule, glycine has replaced the asparagine residue at position A21 and two arginine residues have been added to the carboxyl terminus of the B chain.
