Insulin-Like Growth Factor I (IGF-1) Summary

Description: A well-characterized basic peptide believed to be secreted by the liver and to circulate in the blood. It has growth-regulating, insulin-like, and mitogenic activities. This growth factor has a major, but not absolute, dependence on GROWTH HORMONE. It is believed to be mainly active in adults in contrast to INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR II, which is a major fetal growth factor.

Also Known As: IGF-1; Somatomedin C; IGF-I-SmC; Insulin Like Growth Factor I; Insulin-Like Somatomedin Peptide I; Insulin Like Somatomedin Peptide I; IGF-I; Insulin-like growth factor I
