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

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.
