  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Insulin like Growth Factor 1 (IGF1) Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Insulin like Growth Factor 1 concentrations in Human cell culture supernatants, serum and plasma.


    An Insulin like Growth Factor 1 specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently an Insulin like Growth Factor 1 specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Streptavidin-Peroxidase Conjugate is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. TMB is then used to visualize Streptavidin-Peroxidase enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by Streptavidin-Peroxidase to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the amount of Insulin like Growth Factor 1 captured in plate.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    The insulin-like growth factors, isolated from plasma, are structurally and functionally related to insulin but have a much higher growth-promoting activity. May be a physiological regulator of [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblasts. Stimulates glucose transport in rat bone-derived osteoblastic (PyMS) cells and is effective at much lower concentrations than insulin, not only regarding glycogen and DNA synthesis but also with regard to enhancing glucose uptake.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in IGF1 are the cause of insulin-like growth factor I deficiency (IGF1 deficiency) [MIM:608747]. IGF1 deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by growth retardation, sensorineural deafness and mental retardation.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the insulin family.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
