|Other Names||Insulin-like growth factor I, IGF-I, Mechano growth factor, MGF, Somatomedin-C, IGF1, IBP1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13212b was selected from the C-term region of IGF1. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||The insulin-like growth factors, isolated from plasma, are structurally and functionally related to insulin but have a much higher growth-promoting activity. May be a physiological regulator of [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblasts. Stimulates glucose transport in rat bone-derived osteoblastic (PyMS) cells and is effective at much lower concentrations than insulin, not only regarding glycogen and DNA synthesis but also with regard to enhancing glucose uptake. May play a role in synapse maturation.|

The protein encoded by this gene is similar to insulin infunction and structure and is a member of a family of proteinsinvolved in mediating growth and development. The encoded proteinis processed from a precursor, bound by a specific receptor, andsecreted. Defects in this gene are a cause of insulin-like growthfactor I deficiency. Several transcript variants encoding differentisoforms have been found for this gene.
