Overview

This book comprises an overview of insulin and other peptides in the context of structure, receptor interaction and pharmacological function, presented at the last Alcuin Symposium in Aachen, Germany, held in honor of the lifetime achievements of Prof. Axel Wollmer in the structural analysis of insulin. The major achievements in structural analysis of insulin, insulin analogues, receptor interaction and signal pathways are described by outstanding scientists in this field.
