IGF-1R (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1 Receptor) consists of α- and Β-subunits, which are disulfide-linked in a Β-α-α-Β configuration in the mature receptor. The α-subunit is completely extracellular, while the Β-subunit spans the membrane and the intracellular portion has intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity.

Host Species: Mouse

Clone: 24-60

Isotype: IgG2a/κ

Species Reactivity: Human. Weakly reacts with Rabbit and Pig (Ab-2 is better). Does not react with rat.

Epitope: aa 184-283

Immunogen: IGF-1R/3T3 mouse fibroblasts transfected with human type I IGF-receptor cDNA

Molecular Weight: 125kDa

Positive Control: Placenta or Breast CA

Cellular Localization: Membrane Ab-4 is excellent for immunoprecipitation of alpha-subunit of IGF-1R.

Recommended for:

  • Western Blotting (Not suitable)
  • Immunoprecipitation
  • Acts as a Weak IGF-like Agonist in Bioassays (Thymidine incorporation into DNA)
  • Substantially (>80%) Inhibits IGF-1 Binding
