(Ala31) (Leu60) IGF-I, recombinant protein (Receptor Grade)

(Ala31) (Leu60) Insulin-like Growth Factor-I, recombinant (Receptor Grade) Synonyms: (Ala31) (Leu60) Insulin-like Growth Factor-1, (Ala31) (Leu60) IGF-1

Product Specifications (Ala31) (Leu60) IGF-I:

[Ala31][Leu60]IGF-I is an analog of human IGF-I with a substitution of Ala for Tyr at position 31 and a Leu for Tyr at position 60 of the human IGF-I sequence. Compared to IGF-I, [Ala31][Leu60]IGF-I has greatly reduced binding to the Type 1 IGF receptor and normal binding to acid-stripped human serum binding proteins (Bayne et al., 1990, J. Biol. Chem., 265, 15648-52). [Ala31][Leu60]IGF-I has very low affinity for the Type 1 IGF receptor and this affinity is lower than [Leu24]IGF-I or [Leu60]IGF-I. [Ala31][Leu60]IGF-I is therefore an extremely useful analog of IGF-I for investigating IGF actions largely independent of binding to the Type 1 IGF receptor.

Source: [Ala31][Leu60]IGF-I is produced recombinantly as a fusion protein in E.coli using a patented expression system. The fusion protein containing [Ala31][Leu60]IGF-I is refolded, and after the leader peptide is removed, the [Ala31][Leu60]IGF-I product is purified to Receptor Grade using several chromatography steps.
