Product Specifications


IGF-II is produced in E.coli using a patented expression system.


Human [Arg6] insulin-like Growth Factor-II is an analogue of human IGF-II which has an Arginine substitution in place of Glutamic acid at position 6 of the Human insulin-like Growth Factor-II sequence. [Arg6] IGF-II exhibits reduced affinity for IGF binding proteins (IGFBPs) compared with human IGF-II and has a slightly greater affinity than Des [1-6] IGF-II for the type 2 IGF receptor.
