(Leu60)IGF-II, recombinant protein (Receptor Grade)

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

Product Specifications [Leu60]IGF-I:  

[Leu60]IGF-I is an analog of human IGF-I with a substitution of Leu for Tyr
at position 60 of the human IGF-I sequence. Compared to IGF-I, [Leu60]IGF-I has greatly reduced binding to both the Type 1 IGF receptor and the insulin receptor, but binding to acid-stripped human serum    binding proteins is unaltered. Consequently, [Leu60]IGF-I is an extremely    useful analog of IGF-I for investigating IGF actions largely independent of    binding to the Type 1 IGF receptor. [Leu60]IGF-I has a lower affinity for    the Type 1 IGF and the insulin receptors than  [Leu24]IGF-I.    

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