Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 - 10 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.


  • Function

    The insulin-like growth factors possess growth-promoting activity. In vitro, they are potent mitogens for cultured cells. IGF-II is influenced by placental lactogen and may play a role in fetal development.
    Preptin undergoes glucose-mediated co-secretion with insulin, and acts as physiological amplifier of glucose-mediated insulin secretion. Exhibits osteogenic properties by increasing osteoblast mitogenic activity through phosphoactivation of MAPK1 and MAPK3.
  • Involvement in disease

    Epigenetic changes of DNA hypomethylation in IGF2 are a cause of Silver-Russell syndrome (SIRS) [MIM:180860]. SIRS is a clinically heterogeneous condition characterized by severe intrauterine growth retardation, poor postnatal growth, craniofacial features such as a triangular shaped face and a broad forehead, body asymmetry, and a variety of minor malformations.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the insulin family.
  • Post-translational

    O-glycosylated with a core 1 or possibly core 8 glycan.
  • Cellular localization

Customer reviews and Q&As

1-2 of 2 Abreviews or Q&A


That particular antibody is not available for the testing discount program. That is the case for all the Fast Track antibodies.

However, we always encourage customer to submit reviews, regardless of whether the testing program is available, for instance for applications or species that are already covered byu our guarantee.

Reviews of Fast Track antibodies fall into a special category. Reviews of these are awarded more credits than reviews of other antibodies that are more fully characterized. The difference is that we require an image for these reviews. A description of the AbReview policy can be found by clicking on the "terms and conditions" link at the top of the datasheet:

Feedback reward
We would greatly appreciate your feedback on these antibodies, whether positive or negative. We will award 950 bonus Abpoints to the first researcher who sends us positive feedback (including an image and details of materials and methods). Conclusive negative feedback that leads us to withdraw the antibody will also be rewarded with 950 bonus Abpoints. Other useful positive and negative feedback will be rewarded with the standard Abpoints for submitting an Abreview (please refer to Abreviews terms and conditions for more detailed information). All awards are subject to approval by Abcam scientists and provision of suitable data. Please submit feedback to fast-track@abcam.com

For that antibody, ab123812, the peptide is not commercially available. Please note that this is one of our Fast Track antibodies, meaning it has not been as thoroughly characterized as other antibodies, and that is why the price is lower than the prices of other, more fully characterized antibodies. It was added to the catalogue earlier this month..
