IGF-BPs control the distribution, function and activity of IGFs in various cell tissues and body fluids. Currently, there are seven named IGF-BPs that form high affinity complexes with both IGF-I and IGF-II. IGF-BP2 is a cysteine-rich, secreted protein produced by bone cells, and is most abundant in the brain. IGF-BP2 has been shown to inhibit IGF-II action in human breast and ovarian carcinoma cells. Recombinant Human IGF-BP2 is a 31.5 kDa protein consisting of 289 amino acid residues including the IGF-BP domain and thyroglobulin type-I domain.
