|Description||IGFBP2: insulin-like growth factor binding protein 2. IGFBP2 is a member of the ISGBP family which bind various IGFs. IGFBP2 is overexpressed in a wide spectrum of other cancers, including glioma, prostate cancer, synovial sarcoma, neuroblastoma, colon cancer, adrenocortical cancer, lung cancer, Wilms' tumor, and hepatoblastoma. The overexpression of IGFBP2 also correlates with the aggressiveness of some tumors. IGFBP2 activates the expression of matrix metalloprotease 2, which contributes to cell invasiveness.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of protein IGFBP2 (aa180-328) expressed in E. Coli. |
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 2, IBP-2, IGF-binding protein 2, IGFBP-2, IGFBP2, BP2, IBP2|
|Dilution||WB~~1/500 - 1/2000|
IHC~~1/200 - 1/1000
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||IGFBP2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Inhibits IGF-mediated growth and developmental rates. IGF-binding proteins prolong the half-life of the IGFs and have been shown to either inhibit or stimulate the growth promoting effects of the IGFs on cell culture. They alter the interaction of IGFs with their cell surface receptors.|
