Post-translational Modification
An internal disulphide bond forms between cysteine residues at positions 6 and 11. Two inter-chain disulphide bonds form with the insulin B chain to form the active peptide, between cysteine residues 7 of the B chain and 7 of the A chain, and 20 of the B chain and 19 of the A chain (numbering relative to the amino acid sequences of the individual peptide chains).
