The role of Secretagogin Protein (SCGN) in increasing insulin action in diabetes induced by obesity has been demonstrated recently by scientists.
What is this?
- SCGN is currently established as a therapeutic diabetes functional insulin-binding protein.
- SCGN binds and protects insulin against different stresses, enhances its stability and increases its action.
- SCGN is found in lower quantities in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.
