IGF1 binds its receptor, IGF1R, activating several signaling pathways. IGF1 has been shown to be involved in proliferation, differentiation, survival, growth, apoptosis and regeneration.

  • High purity: Minimizes interference from other proteins or contaminants
  • High biological activity: More results with less protein
  • Proven compatibility: Gibco proteins bioassayed with Gibco media
  • High purity recombinant bioactive protein: To help ensure Gibco growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to help ensure a biologically active protein
  • High biological activity: In-house activity testing of Gibco Recombinant Proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, and protease assays; specific activity is determined by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of mouse FDC-P1 cells
