  • $\begingroup$ Other hormones have also been made using rDNA technology. Some of which I'm aware of are HCG and GnRH used for Induced breeding of fish. Now humulin synthesised is not exactly the same as natural human insulin it varies in certain amino acid sequences. $\endgroup$ – Tyto alba Mar 28 '17 at 5:20
