Summary

The addition of zinc to a solution of insulin in TRA-buffer pH 7.8, causes a precipitation of poorly soluble insulin-zinc-complexes. Under similar experimental conditions, photooxydized insulin remains in solution. Sedimentation coefficients and average molecular weights of the dissolved insulins were not influenced by additional zinc.
