Applications

Recommended Concentration
Sample
Neutralization
Measured by its ability to neutralize IGF-I/IGF-1-induced proliferation in the MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line. Karey, K.P. et al. (1988) Cancer Research 48:4083. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.1-0.8 µg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL Recombinant Human IGF-I/IGF-1.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Cell Proliferation Induced by IGF-I/IGF-1 and Neutralization by Human IGF-I/IGF-1 Antibody. Recombinant Human IGF-I/IGF-1 (Catalog # 291-G1) stimulates proliferation in the MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Human IGF-I/IGF-1 (10 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rat Anti-Human IGF-I/IGF-1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2912). The ND50 is typically 0.1-0.8 µg/mL.

Background: IGF-I/IGF-1

Insulin-like growth factor I, also known as somatomedin C, is the dominant effector of growth hormone and is structurally homologous to proinsulin. Human IGF-I is synthesized as two precursor isoforms with N- and alternate C-terminal propeptides (1). These isoforms are differentially expressed by various tissues (1). The 7.6 kDa mature IGF-I is identical between isoforms and is generated by proteolytic removal of the N- and C-terminal regions. Mature human IGF‑I shares 94% and 96% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat IGF-I, respectively (2), and exhibits cross-species activity. It shares 64% aa sequence identity with mature human
IGF‑II. Circulating IGF‑I is produced by hepatocytes, while local IGF-I is produced by many other tissues in which it has paracrine effects (1). IGF-I induces the proliferation, migration, and differentiation of a wide variety of cell types during development and postnatally (3). IGF-I regulates glucose and fatty acid metabolism, steroid hormone activity, and cartilage and bone metabolism (4-7). It plays an important role in muscle regeneration and tumor progression (1, 8). IGF-I binds IGF‑I R, IGF-II R, and the insulin receptor, although its effects are mediated primarily by IGF-I R (9). IGF-I association with IGF binding proteins increases its plasma half‑life and modulates its interactions with receptors (10).
