  1. 1. Proteolysis of insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1, -2 and -4 : function of fragments

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Författare :Katrin Brandt; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Insulin-like growth factor;

    Sammanfattning : The insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I and IGF-II) stimulate cell growth, survival and differentiation, and have insulin-like activity. A family of six IGF-binding proteins (IGFBP-1 through -6) bind to IGFs with high affinity and modulate their activity in the circulation and locally at cell-surface receptors. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 : structure and function

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Författare :Maria Ahlsén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : p>Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) -I and -II share structural homology with insulin. Their receptors and intracellular signaling are similar. Consequently, the biological actions of IGFs and insulin are overlapping. Insulin is secreted on demand depending on e. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Novel insulin-like growth factor-binding protein proteases : detection and characterization

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Författare :Jing Wang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IGFs; IGFBP-1. IGFBP-3; azurocidin HBP CAP37; IGFBP protease; gender;

    Sammanfattning : Members of the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system are known to have an impact on cell differentiation, proliferation and survival, and to be important regulators for nutrient metabolism. The IGF-binding proteins (IGFBP-1 to -6) control the availability of IGFs (IGF-I and IGF-II) to their receptors. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Regulation of insulin-like growth factor-II in human liver

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Författare :Henrik von Horn; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; IG17-II; IGF2; IGFBPs; liver; hepatoblastoma; GH; hypoxia;

    Sammanfattning : Insulin-like growth factors-I and -II (IGF-I and -II) are mitogens in a number of cell types and also have insulin-like actions. IGF-II has an autocrine role in a variety of malignancies; and hypoglycemia is well documented in conditions associated with elevated IGF-II precursor forms in the circulation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Insulin-like growth factor II : Cellular effects through different receptors

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Författare :Qimin Zhang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Insulin-like growth factor -II (IGF-II) and IGF-I are single-chain polypeptidesstructurally homologous to proinsulin and share similarities with insulin in functionalcharacteristics. Cellular actions of IGF-II are generally thought to be mediatedthrough the IGF-I or insulin receptors, but not the IGF-II receptor, which is a singlechain protein, identical to the cation independent mannose 6-phosphate (M6P) receptorand responsible for lysosomal enzyme targeting and degradation of IGF-II.
