Product Summary
The Quantikine® Human IGF-II Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human IGF-II in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human IGF-II and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human IGF-II showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine® kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human IGF-II.

Precision
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty separate assays to assess inter-assay precision. Assays were performed by at least three technicians using two lots of components.

Recovery

The recovery of human IGF-II spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Serum-free Cell Culture Media (n=4) 95 82-104
Urine (n=4) 94 79-104
Linearity
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of human IGF-II were diluted with calibrator diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: IGF-II

Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I (also known as somatomedin C and somatomedin A) and IGF-II (multiplication stimulating activity or MSA) belong to the family of insulin-like growth factors that are structurally homologous to proinsulin. Mature IGF-I and IGF-II share approximately 70% sequence identity. Both IGF-I and IGF-II are expressed in many tissues and cell types and may have autocrine, paracrine and endocrine functions. Mature IGF-I and IGF-II are highly conserved between the human, bovine and porcine proteins (100% identity), and exhibit cross-species activity.

The IGFL (insulin-like growth factor-like) family includes four small (~11 kDa), probably secreted family members in humans and one in mouse. This family shares A and B chain cysteine motifs with the IGF superfamily, and has an additional cysteine motif within an uncleaved region corresponding to the C peptide of the IGF family.
