Catalog number BBP-370-2
Brand family Austral Biologicals
Product type Proteins and Peptides

Biological Information

Purity Over 90% (SDS gel electrophoresis)
Purification method Purified by affinity chromatography and reverse-phase HPLC


SwissProt ID Link P24593
Function IGF-binding proteins prolong the half-life of the IGFs and have been shown to either inhibit or stimulate the growth promoting effects of the IGFs on cell culture. They alter the interaction of IGFs with their cell surface receptors
Subcellular Location Secreted
Tissue Specificity Osteosarcoma, and at lower levels in liver, kidney and brain
Sequence Similarities Contains 1 IGFBP N-terminal domain.
Contains 1 thyroglobulin type-1 domain

Poduct Presentation

Form Lyophilized powder

Storage and Shipping Information

Storage Store at +4 ºC. Reconstitution is best in water or buffer near neutral pH. After reconstitution, storage in aliquots at -80 ºC is recommended
