  • 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

  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links

  • Form

    There are 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing. Isoform 1 also known as: IGF-IB; Isoform 2 also known as: IGF-IA.

Customer reviews and Q&As


A BLAST alignment shows only 58% homology between IGF1 and IGF2. Since the full length IGF1 protein was used to generate this antibody, it is unlikely to cross react with IGF2. Typically, we find that greater than 85% homology is needed for cross reactivity. I hope this helps!
