Human IGFBP-4 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human
Specificity
Detects human IGFBP-4 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, no cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) IGFBP-1, rhIGFBP-2, or rhIGFBP-3 is observed.
Source
Monoclonal Mouse IgG2B Clone # 82334
Purification
Protein A or G purified from ascites
Immunogen
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human IGFBP‑4
Asp22-Glu258
Accession # AAA62670
Formulation
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.

Applications

Recommended Concentration
Sample
Neutralization
Measured by its ability to neutralize IGFBP‑4 inhibition of IGF‑II-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 0.3 µg/mL Recombinant Human IGFBP‑4 and 14 ng/mL Recombinant Human IGF‑II.

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.

IGFBP‑4 Inhibition of IGF‑II-dependent Cell Proliferation and Neutralization by Human IGFBP‑4 Antibody. Recombinant Human IGFBP-4 (Catalog # 804-GB) inhibits Recombinant Human IGF-II (Catalog # 292-G2) induced proliferation in the MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of Recombinant Human IGF-II (14 ng/mL) activity elicited by Recombinant Human IGFBP-4 (0.3 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Mouse Anti-Human IGFBP-4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB804). The ND50 is typically 10-40 µg/mL.

Background: IGFBP-4

Human IGF binding protein 4 (IGFBP-4) was isolated from human plasma based on its ability to bind immobilized IGF-I. Human IGFBP-4 cDNA encodes a 258 amino acid (aa) precursor protein with a predicted 21 aa signal peptide that is processed to generate the 237 aa mature human IGFBP-4. The human IGFBP-4 contains a potential N-linked glycosylation site and shares approximately 90% aa sequence identity with both the mouse and rat IGFBP-4. According to the nomenclature of IGFBPs defined at the 4th International Symposium of IGFs (1997, Tokyo), six high-affinity IGF binding proteins (IGFBP-1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6) and four IGFBP-related proteins (IGFBPr-1, - 2, -3, -4) have been identified. All IGFBPs have a high cysteine content and share conserved cysteine residues that are clustered in the amino- and carboxy-terminal third of the molecule. IGFBPs have been shown to either inhibit or enhance the biological activities of IGF, or act in an IGF-independent manner. Post-translational modification of IGFBPs, including phosphorylation and proteolysis, have been shown to modify the affinities of the binding proteins for IGF and may indirectly regulate IGF actions.
