How many amino acids do the insulin protein of apes and chimanpzees compose of?!

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Biology.SE! There are probably 20-30 extant species of apes (6 of them were sequenced; see here). It will be impossible to answer for every single species. Why do you say apes & chimpanzees. You are interested in all apes but in particular in chimpanzees? Why chimpanzee in particular (why not bonobo, human or a species of gorilla typically)? If you could give some background behind your interest it would be more likely people would find the question worth their time. $\endgroup$ – Remi.b Sep 13 '17 at 0:18

On the Ensembl website you can find an easy way to compare genetic sequences of the available genome references, including the one of several primates.

Here a query example: http://www.ensembl.org/Homo_sapiens/Gene/Compara_Alignments?align=822&db=core&g=ENSG00000254647&r=11%3A2159779-2161341

For protein sequences, check the Uniprot website. For insulin, this is the page you are looking for http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P01308 Check the paragraph "Similar proteins", there you will find all the links to retreive the insulin sequence from all the species for which we have sequencing data.
