The insulin-like growth factor system includes two receptors (IGF-1R and IGF-2R), two ligands (IGF-1 and IGF-2), and seven binding proteins (IGFBP1-7). The binding proteins are produced in the liver and bind to the IGFs with different affinities, thus regulating the interaction of the IGFs with their receptors. Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) is the major serum carrier protein for IGF proteins. IGFBP-3 sequesters IGF in a stable ternary complex with the acid-labile subunit (ALS). IGFBP-3 binds IGF-1 with high affinity and specificity and modulates IGF-1 action. IGFBP-3 undergoes limited enzymatic proteolysis to generate small N-terminal fragments. These proteolytic products lose their affinity for IGF-1 and IGF-2. Nevertheless, they preserve IGF independent activity. In that sense, a 16 kD fragment (1-95-IGFBP-3) and the full length molecule can potentiate apoptosis in colorectal epithelial cells, and this apoptotic process is associated with the inhibition of TNF-α-induced NF-κB activity. In addition, IGFBP-3 has been detected in the cell nucleus and interacts with 9-cis retinoic acid receptor-alpha (RXR-α), which is a nuclear receptor that is required for the apoptosis-inducing effects of IGFBP-3. IGFBP-3R physically interacts and activates caspase-8 and mediates IGFBP-3-induced apoptosis and tumor suppression.

AB_2566243 (BioLegend Cat. No. 679702)

Antigen Details

291 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of approximately 32 kD. The glycosylated form migrates at approximately 45-50 kD by SDS-PAGE.
IGFBP-3 is expressed by most of the tissues and is present in plasma.
Transports insulin like growth factors (IGFs) and protects them from rapid clearance and/or degradation as well as modulating IGFs bioavailability. IGFBP-3 induces apoptosis in vitro and suppresses tumors in vivo. IGFBP-3 is induced by growth hormones, TGF-β, vitamin D, retinoids, and anti-estrogens.
Interacts with XLKD1, IGF2, IGF1, ALS, HN, and TMEM219.
