Name : IGF-I, Human

Product Concentration :

Background :
Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) also known as Somatamedin C is a hormone similar in molecular structure to Insulin. Human IGF-I has two isoforms (IGF-IA and IGF-IB) which are differentially expressed by various tissues. Mature human IGF-I shares 94% and 96% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IGF-I, respectively. Both IGF-I and IGF-II (another ligand of IGF) can signal through the IGF-I receptor (IGFIR), but only IGF-II can bind the IGF-II receptor (IGFIIR/ Mannose-6-phosphate receptor). IGF-I plays an important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effects in adults.
