Based on Luminex technology platform, Creative Proteomics provides analysis services for key targets of IGF-1 signaling pathway.
(Maki RG, et al. 2019)Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and its receptor (IGF-1R) provide a powerful proliferative signaling system that stimulates the growth of many different cell types and prevents apoptosis. In vivo, IGF-1 acts as an intermediate in many growth hormone responses and stimulates the growth of certain types of cancer. igf-1 also provides a mitogenic signal that acts as a growth factor for many tissue culture cells. one component of IGF-1 mitogenic signaling is the association of receptor tyrosine kinases with Shc, Grb2, and Sos-1 to activate the ras and Map kinase cascades (raf, Mek, Erk). phosphorylation of IRS-1 and activation of PI3 kinase are also involved in IGF-1 signaling, similar to insulin signaling.
The IGF-1 signaling pathway regulates the growth and development of embryonic tissues and various tissues after birth. In terms of pathophysiology, the IGF-1 signaling pathway provides a new intracellular signaling mechanism, thus providing new ideas for the prevention and treatment of diseases in which ICF-1 is involved in cell proliferation as the main pathological alteration.
IGF-1 signaling pathway has endocrine, autocrine and paracrine properties, which can mimic some biological effects of GH, promote cell proliferation and differentiation, promote cell growth and inhibit apoptosis. It also has insulin-like metabolic activity and immunomodulatory effects.
We provide Luminex technology for IGF-1 signaling pathway analysis.
Luminex technology is a multifunctional liquid phase analysis platform, which is developed on the basis of high-speed digital signal processing technology, colored microspheres, applied fluidics and laser technology. The core is the use of fluorescent dyes for encoding. By adjusting the different ratios of different fluorescent dyes, more than 100 microspheres with different fluorescence spectra were obtained. The reactions are carried out on microspheres with different fluorescent codes, such as nucleic acid hybridization, antigen-antibody, enzyme-substrate, ligand-receptor binding reactions. Using laser detection technology, qualitative and quantitative analysis of microsphere encoding and reporting fluorescence.
Creative Proteomics has developed a signal pathway target detection platform. We are not limited to providing IGF-1 signal path detection services, but can also provide other signal path detection services. If you want to detect other targets, please contact us and we will customize the service for you. Look forward to working with you.
