Human IGF1R HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human IGF1R overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of IGF1R protein (Cat: 10164-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met1-Asn932) of human IGF1R (NP_000866.1) was expressed with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The calculated molecular masses for α subunit, β subunit and the single chain of the receptor are approximately 81 kDa, 23 kDa and 104 kDa, respectively. As a result of glycosylation, the recombinant single chain, α subunit and β subunit have apparent molecular masses of approximately 150 kDa, 120 kDa and 48 kDa, respectively in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human IGF1R HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

IGF1R Background Information
The insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF1R) is a transmembrane tyrosine kinase involved in several biological processes including cell proliferation, differentiation, DNA repair, and cell survival. This a disulfide-linked heterotetrameric transmembrane protein consisting of two α and two β subunits, and among which, the α subunit is extracellular while the β subunit has an extracellular domain, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase domain. The IGF1R signaling pathway is activated in the mammalian nervous system from the early developmental stages. Its major effect on developing neural cells is to promote their growth and survival. This pathway can integrate its action with signaling pathways of growth and morphogenetic factors that induce cell fate specification and selective expansion of specified neural cell subsets. Modulation of cell migration is another possible role that IGF1R activation may play in neurogenesis. In the mature brain, IGF-I binding sites have been found in different regions of the brain, and multiple reports confirmed a strong neuroprotective action of the IGF-IR against different pro-apoptotic insults. IGF1R is an important signaling molecule in cancer cells and plays an essential role in the establishment and maintenance of the transformed phenotype. Inhibition of IGF1R signaling thus appears to be a promising strategy to interfere with the growth and survival of cancer cells. IGF1R is frequently overexpressed by tumors and mediates proliferation and apoptosis protection. IGF signaling also influences hypoxia signaling, protease secretion, tumor cell motility, and adhesion, and thus can affect the propensity for invasion and metastasis. Therefore, IGF1R is now an attractive anti-cancer treatment target.
