IGFBP‑4 in Human Stomach.
IGFBP‑4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human stomach array using Goat Anti-Human IGFBP‑4 Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF804) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

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) residue precursor protein with a predicted 21 aa residue signal peptide that is processed to generate the 237 aa residue mature human IGFBP-4. The human IGFBP-4 contains a potential N-linked glycosylation site and shares approximately 90% amino acid 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.
