Human IGFBP-1 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human IGFBP-1 in ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, detection of recombinant mouse IGFBP-1 is observed but no cross‑reactivity with recombinant human (rh) IGFBP‑2, rhIGFBP‑3, rhIGFBP‑4 or rhIGFBP-5 is observered.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 33627
Protein A or G purified from ascites
E. coli-derived recombinant human IGFBP-1
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.

2-8 µg/mL 

Use in combination with:

Detection Reagent: Human IGFBP‑1 Biotinylated Antibody (Catalog # BAF871)

Standard: Recombinant Human IGFBP-1 Protein, CF (Catalog # 871-B1)

Measured by its ability to neutralize IGFBP‑1 inhibition of IGF‑I-dependent 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 10‑40 µg/mL in the presence of 5 µg/mL Recombinant Human IGFBP‑1 and 6 ng/mL Recombinant Human IGF‑I.

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.

Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Recombinant Human and Mouse IGFBP-1 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Recombinant Human and Mouse IGFBP‑1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows 25 ng of Recombinant Human IGFBP-1 (Catalog # 871-B1), Recombinant Mouse IGFBP-1 (Catalog # 1588-B1) and Recombinant Human IGFBP-5 (Catalog # 875-B5). PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human IGFBP-1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB675) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for IGFBP-1 at approximately 26 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under non-reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 3.

Neutralization IGFBP‑1 Inhibition of IGF‑I-dependent Cell Proliferation and Neutralization by Human IGFBP‑1 Antibody. View Larger

IGFBP‑1 Inhibition of IGF‑I-dependent Cell Proliferation and Neutralization by Human IGFBP‑1 Antibody. Recombinant Human IGFBP-1 (Catalog # 871-B1) inhibits Recombinant Human IGF-I (Catalog # 291-G1) induced proliferation in the MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of Recombinant Human IGF-I (6 ng/mL) activity elicited by Recombinant Human IGFBP-1 (5 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Human IGFBP-1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB675). The ND50 is typically 10-40 µg/mL.

Western Blot Detection of Human IGFBP-1 by Western Blot View Larger

Detection of Human IGFBP-1 by Western Blot Differentiation-dependent protein expression of PRL and IGFBP1 in culture supernatants of HDSC and THESC. Cells were stimulated in the absence or presence of cAMP and/or E2P4 for 3, 6, 9 and 12 days. Supernatants were collected and PRL and IGFBP1 protein concentrations were measured by ELISA and Western blotting, respectively. Normalization of protein concentrations, ELISA, and immunodetection of IGFBP1 on membranes were performed as mentioned in Materials and Methods. A) ELISA of PRL in HDSC and THESC. Data represent mean values ± SEM of three experiments performed in duplicates. * indicates p < 0.05 compared to negative control (n.c.) of the same day; n.s., not significant; # indicates p < 0.05 between cAMP-treated and cAMP/E2P4-stimulated cultures. PRL expression in controls and E2P4-treated THESC were below the detection limit and therefore omitted from the graph. B) Western blot showing IGFBP1 (32 kD) expression in HDSC and THESC. Marker bands (kD) are depicted on the left side. Representative examples are shown. Image collected and cropped by CiteAb from the following publication (, licensed under a CC-BY license.

Background: IGFBP-1

The superfamily of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) binding proteins include the six high-affinity IGF binding proteins (IGFBP) and at least four additional low-affinity binding proteins referred to as IGFBP related proteins (IGFBP-rP). All IGFBP superfamily members are cysteine-rich proteins with conserved cysteine residues, which are clustered in the amino- and carboxy-terminal thirds of the molecule. IGFBPs modulate the biological activities of IGF proteins. Some IGFBPs may also have intrinsic bioactivity that is independent of their ability to bind IGF proteins. Post-transitional modifications of IGFBP, including glycosylation, phosphorylation and proteolysis, have been shown to modify the affinities of the binding proteins to IGF.

Human IGFBP-1 cDNA encodes a 259 amino acid (aa) residue precursor protein with a putative 25 aa residue signal peptide that is processed to generate the 234 aa residue mature protein. IGFBP-1 contains an integrin receptor recognition sequence (RGD sequence) but lacks potential N-linked glycosylation sites. IGFBP-1 is expressed in liver, decidua, kidneys and is the most abundant IGFBP in amniotic fluid. Serum levels of IGFBP-1 are lowest after meals. Hepatocyte production of IGFBP-1 is regulated at the transcriptional level due to the affects of insulin and corticosteriods. IGFBP-1 binds equally well to IGF-I and IGF-II, with phosphorylated forms of IGFBP-1 exhibiting higher binding affinities.
