GH-dependant binding protein, IBP3, BP-53, IGFBP-3.
IGFBP3 is a member of the IGFBP family and encodes a protein with an IGFBP domain and a thyroglobulin type-I domain. The protein forms a ternary complex with IGFALS and either IGF I or II. In this form, it circulates in the plasma, prolonging the half-life of IGFs and altering their interaction with cell surface receptors. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.
IGFBP3 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 264 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 28806 Dalton.
IGFBP-3 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IGFBP3 in sterile 20mM AcOH (acetic Acid) not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Upon reconstitution IGF-BP 3 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Amino acid sequence
The ED50, calculated by by its ability to inhibit IGF-II induced proliferation of MCF-7 is < 200ng/ml in the presence of 15ng/ml of Human IGF-II, corresponding to a specific activity of 5.0 × 103 IU/mg.
