Stability and Reconstitution

Stability and Storage Lyophilized proteins are stable for 1 year from the date of receipt if stored between (-20°C) and (-80°C). Upon reconstitution we recommend that the solution can be stored at (4°C) for short term or at (-20°C) to (-80°C) for long term. Repeated freeze thaw cycles should be avoided with reconstituted products.
Reconstitution Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile 1x PBS containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).

Background

The Insulin like growth factor-1, also known as Somatomedin-C is a growth factor which is structurally related to insulin and is an important regulator of growth and differentiation in various tissues and cell systems. Human IGF-1 is synthesized as two precursor isoforms with N- and alternate C-terminal propeptide. The two precursor isoforms are differentially expressed by various tissues. The proteolytic cleavage of the N- and C-terminal regions results in the mature IGF-1 protein which is identical between isoforms. IGF-1 binds to IGF-1 receptor and induces receptor autophosphorylation. This further phosphorylates Insulin receptor substrate -1 (IRS-1) and activates various downstream signaling pathways including the PI3-AKT, MAPK etc. (PMID: 17354613, 17113337, 29535161)
