DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
IGFBP4Protein Product Information
Synonym:BP-4, HT29-IGFBP, IBP4, IGFBP-4, IGFBP4
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human IGFBP4 (NP_001543.2) precursor (Met 1-Glu 258) with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag was expressed.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
IGFBP4Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:1. Measured by its ability to bind human IGF1 (Cat:10598-H24E) in functional ELISA.
2. Measured by its ability to bind human IGF2 (Cat:13032-H24E) in functional ELISA.
3. Measured by its ability to inhibit the biological activity of IGFI or IGFII on MCF7 human breast adenocarcinoma cells (Karey, K.P. et al. (1988) Cancer Research 48:4083.). The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.04-0.4 μg/mL in the presence of 14 ng/mL human IGFII.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Asp 22
Molecule Mass:The secreted recombinant human IGFBP4 comprises 248 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 27.4 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, it migrates as an approximately 32 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
IGFBP4Protein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

Insulin-like growth factor binding protein 4 (IGFBP-4) is a 24-kDa protein that binds insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and IGF-2 with high affinity and inhibits IGF action in vitro. The Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein also known as IGFBP serves as a carrier protein for Insulin-like growth factor 1. IGFBPs are clearly distinct but are sharing regions with strong homology. All members of the IGFBP family bind IGF-I and IGF-II with about equal affinity. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) binding proteins (IGFBPs) have been shown to either inhibit or enhance the action of IGF, or act in an IGF-independent manner in the prostate. IGF-binding protein-4 (IGFBP-4) inhibits IGF-I action in vitro and is the most abundant IGFBP in the rodent arterial wall. Expression of IGFBP-4 mRNA in nontransgenic littermates was maximal in liver and kidney. IGFBP-4 is a functional antagonist of IGF-I action on SMC. There is mounting evidence that the structure of the IGFBP proteins plays a key role in the regulation of IGF bioavailability, by modulating its molecular size, capillary membrane permeability, target tissue specificity, cell membrane adherence and IGF affinity.
