Mouse Anti Human Monoclonal.
The somatomedins, or insulin-like growth factors (IGFs), comprise a family of peptides that play important roles in mammalian growth and development. IGF1 mediates many of the growth-promoting effects of growth hormone (GH; MIM 139250). Early studies showed that growth hormone did not directly stimulate the incorporation of sulfate into cartilage, but rather acted through a serum factor, termed 'sulfation factor,' which later became known as 'somatomedin' (Daughaday et al., 1972). Three main somatomedins have been characterized: somatomedin C (IGF1), somatomedin A (IGF2; MIM 147470), and somatomedin B (MIM 193190) (Rotwein, 1986; Rosenfeld, 2003).
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
Anti-human IGF1 mAb, clone PAT6F8AT, is derived from hybridization of mouse F0 myeloma cells with spleen cells from BALB/c mice immunized with a recombinant human IGF1 protein 49-118 amino acids purified from E. coli.
Mouse IgG2b heavy chain and k light chain.
IGF1 antibody was purified from mouse ascitic fluids by protein-A affinity chromatography.
