    Human insulin made by bacteria is injected into humans correctly describes a way that bacteria are used in biotechnology.

    Option C

    Explanation:

    Human body do make insulin from the beta cells of islet of Langerhans. But in diseases like diabetes mellitus, there's decrease in the cell count of beta cells. Thus there's very less amount or no insulin. Thus excess insulin is required to be delivered from outside.

    So bacteria are genetically engineered to produce human insulin. Insulin Aspert and Lisper are produced in this way. Thus the bacteria insulin are required for those individuals to survive and led a happy healthy life.
