Chemical Insulin-Like Growth Factor II

Name Insulin-Like Growth Factor II
CAS Type 1 Name Insulin-like growth factor II
Equivalent Terms Factor, Multiplication-Stimulating | IGF-2 | IGF-II | Insulin Like Growth Factor II | Insulin Like Somatomedin Peptide II | Insulin-Like Somatomedin Peptide II | Multiplication Stimulating Activity | Multiplication-Stimulating Activity | Multiplication Stimulating Factor | Multiplication-Stimulating Factor | Somatomedin A | Somatomedin MSA
CAS Registry Number 67763-97-7
Definition A well-characterized neutral peptide believed to be secreted by the LIVER and to circulate in the BLOOD. It has growth-regulating, insulin-like and mitogenic activities. The growth factor has a major, but not absolute, dependence on SOMATOTROPIN. It is believed to be a major fetal growth factor in contrast to INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR I, which is a major growth factor in adults.
