Description of Gildhead Seabream IGF-I
IGF1 Gilthead SeabreamRecombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 68 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7545.4 Dalton, the predicted pI=7.72.IGF-1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Binding assays of the 125I-Gealthead Seabream IGF1 to Gilthead Seabream or carp (Cyprinus carpio) sera resulted in high specific binding, indicating the existence of one or more IGF-binding proteins. In binding experiments to crude Gilthead Seabream brain homogenate, using human (h) IGF-I as a ligand, the respective IC50 value of hIGF1 was about fourfold lower than that of Gilthead Seabream IGF-1. Recombinant Gilthead Seabream IGF-1 exhibited mitogenic activity in a mouse mammary gland-derived MME-L1 cell line which was approximately 200-fold lower than that of hIGF1. Binding experiments to intact MME-L1 cells suggests that this difference most likely results from a correspondingly lower affinity for IGF1 receptor in these cells. In contrast, the activities of Gilthead Seabream IGF-I and hIGF-I measured by 35S uptake by gill arches from the goldfish (Carassius auratus) were identical, indicating that the recombinant Gilthead Seabream IGF-I is biologically active.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IGF-1 in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3 adjusted to ph 8-9, not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized IGF1 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IGF1 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 avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
