Submission + - Australian researchers crack insulin's structure (nature.com)

" rel="nofollow">brindafella writes: "Australian research on insulin, using X-ray chrystallography at the Australian Synchrotron, has revealed how molecules of insulin bind to a protein on the cells of the body. Results have been published
  in the journal Nature. Specific results relate to the type 1 insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF1R), and are expected to create great interest among companies producing insulin for diabetics, possibly leading to a tablet form of insulin (rather than the current need for an injection.)"
