Background information

Insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF-2) is a protein that affects growth, differentiation, and survival of cells in a variety of tissues during embryonic development. IGF-2 belongs to the family of insulin-like growth factors, binds to the IGF-1 receptor, and activates the MAPK as well as the PI3K pathway. In addition, IGF2 also induces granulosa cell proliferation during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle.

Quality description

Research-grade
cytokines are suitable for a wide variety of cell culture applications. They are sterile-filtered prior to lyophilization. Generally, endotoxin levels are <0.1 ng/μg (<1 EU/μg), and purities are >95%. The biological activity is tested in appropriate bioassays.
