Igf --> insulin like growth factor

(Science: growth factor)Insulin like growth factors i and II are polypeptides with considerable sequence similarity to insulin.

They are capable of eliciting the same biological responses, including mitogenesis in cell culture. On the cell surface, there are two types of insulin like growth factor receptor, one of which closely resembles the insulin receptor (which is also present).

insulin like growth factor i = somatomedin a = somatomedin c

insulin like growth factor ii = MSA (multiplication stimulating activity).

insulin like growth factor 1 is released from the liver in response to growth hormone.

Acronym: igf

Re: FBS store

... and the proposed function is to release growth factors that are typically bound and sequestered by binding protein. A key growth factor in FBS is IGF-1, which is bound to IGF-1 binding protein. I still would question the necessity of heating the serum. In labs, often times certain techniques are ...
