Sažetak

The reversible reaction of cyclohexane-1,2-dione with the
guanidino function of Arg-B22 in bovine insulin gave the dihydroxycyclohexylene
[DHCH]-Arg-B22-insulin complex (I) which,
after selective tryptic cleavage at the Lys-B29 residue and regeneration
of the guanidino group, afforded bovine des-AlaB30-
-insulin (III) in an overal 85.80/o yield. The truncated insulin III
was converted into the regular zinc salt and, under conditions
that favour binding of more than 2 Zn atoms per insulin hexamer
unit, into a crystalline suspension. When tested for their hypoglycaemic
activity, the two forms of III exhibited significantly different
durations of the effect in mice: the blood glucose curves
obtained for the III-Zn salt and the III-crystalline suspension
were indistinguishable from those exerted by regular- and long-
acting bovine zinc insulin, respectively.
