GMP LR3 IGF-I/IGF-1 Protein, Human (83a.a, E51R)

Cat. No.: HY-P70783G
COA Handling Instructions

The LR3 IGF-I/IGF-1 protein is similar to insulin and has potent growth-promoting activity that exceeds the efficacy of insulin. As a potential physiological regulator, it stimulates glucose transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblasts even at significantly lower concentrations than insulin. GMP LR3 IGF-I/IGF-1 Protein, Human (83a.a, E51R) is the recombinant human-derived LR3 IGF-I/IGF-1 protein, expressed by E. coli , with tag free. The total length of GMP LR3 IGF-I/IGF-1 Protein, Human (83a.a, E51R) is 70 a.a., with molecular weight of ~11 kDa.

GMP-grade recombinant proteins are produced under independent QA supervision, as well as quality records and full traceability.

Background

The LR3 IGF-I/IGF-1 protein, structurally and functionally akin to insulin, boasts significantly heightened growth-promoting activity compared to its counterpart. Positioned as a potential physiological regulator, LR3 IGF-I may govern [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblasts, demonstrating effective stimulation of glucose transport in bone-derived osteoblastic (PyMS) cells even at markedly lower concentrations than insulin. Its multifaceted roles extend to potential involvement in synapse maturation and the Ca(2+)-dependent exocytosis essential for sensory perception of smell in the olfactory bulb. Operating as a ligand for IGF1R, LR3 IGF-I binds to the alpha subunit, initiating the activation of intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity, autophosphorylating tyrosine residues in the beta subunit. This activation triggers a cascade of downstream signaling events leading to the activation of the PI3K-AKT/PKB and Ras-MAPK pathways. Further, LR3 IGF-I forms crucial ternary complexes with integrins (ITGAV:ITGB3 and ITGA6:ITGB4) and IGFR1, essential for comprehensive IGF1 signaling, influencing the phosphorylation and activation of IGFR1, MAPK3/ERK1, MAPK1/ERK2, and AKT1. It also exhibits diverse molecular interactions, including with SH2D3C isoform 2.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.

  • Dilution Calculator

  • Specific Activity Calculator

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)
× = ×

The specific activity calculator equation

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)
Unit/mg = 106 ÷ ng/mL
