The human IGF-1 ELISA kit is a solid-phase immunoassay specially designed to quantitatively measure human IGF-1 in serum, plasma, or tissue homogenates. It is based on the Sandwich-ELISA mechanism. IGF-1 in the sample is bound to the capture antibody immobilized on the 96-well strip plate and then sandwiched with the biotinylated IGF-1 antibody. After the addition of HRP-avidin and TMB substrate, the solution in the wells turns blue. The color reaction is stopped by adding the stop solution into the wells, and the color changes from blue to yellow. The color intensity is positively proportional to the IGF-1 bound in the initial step. The IGF-1 concentration can be calculated according to the standard curve. This kit is tested with high sensitivity, strong specificity, good linearity, high precision and recovery, as well as lot-to-lot consistency.

IGF-1 plays a pivotal role in fetal development, adolescent growth, and adult tissue homeostasis. Together with IGF-2, IGF-1 is also important in skeletal muscle accrual during development, muscle maintenance, and aging, as well as during muscle injury. IGF-1 also participated in cellular differentiation and reproductive function. It is a survival agent and growth factor for a diverse range of normal and malignant cells. IGF-1 plays a key role in the anti-apoptotic and mitogenic pathways in many cell types. Altered IGF-1 has been linked to obesity and many related diseases. including cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
The insulin-like growth factors, isolated from plasma, are structurally and functionally related to insulin but have a much higher growth-promoting activity. May be a physiological regulator of [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblasts. Stimulates glucose transport in bone-derived osteoblastic (PyMS) cells and is effective at much lower concentrations than insulin, not only regarding glycogen and DNA synthesis but also with regard to enhancing glucose uptake. May play a role in synapse maturation. Ca(2+)-dependent exocytosis of IGF1 is required for sensory perception of smell in the olfactory bulb. Acts as a ligand for IGF1R. Binds to the alpha subunit of IGF1R, leading to the activation of the intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity which autophosphorylates tyrosine residues in the beta subunit thus initiatiating a cascade of down-stream signaling events leading to activation of the PI3K-AKT/PKB and the Ras-MAPK pathways. Binds to integrins ITGAV:ITGB3 and ITGA6:ITGB4. Its binding to integrins and subsequent ternary complex formation with integrins and IGFR1 are essential for IGF1 signaling. Induces the phosphorylation and activation of IGFR1, MAPK3/ERK1, MAPK1/ERK2 and AKT1.
