DescriptionMILLIPLEX® Human IGF Binding Protein Magnetic Bead Panel - Metabolism Multiplex Assay
OverviewThe MILLIPLEX® Human IGF Binding Protein (IGFBP) Magnetic Bead Panel, is used for the simultaneous quantification of any or all of the following analytes in human serum, plasma, and cell culture conditioned-media samples: IGFBP-1, IGFBP-2, IGFBP-3, IGFBP-4, IGFBP-5, IGFBP-6, and IGFBP-7
Background InformationInsulin-like growth factor (IGF) binding proteins (IGFBP) are expressed by multiple tissues and cells, including hepatic cells. By binding both IGF-1 and IGF-2, IGFBPs play a critical role in the regulation of IGF action, altering IGF interaction with cell surface receptors and increasing circulating IGF half-life and bioavailability. While their functions at the cellular level are not fully understood, studies have demonstrated the capacity to both stimulate and inhibit IGF-1 activity, depending on the system involved and the IGFBP studied. The ability of IGFBPs to regulate cell sensitivity by inhibiting IGF signaling may function in the control of tumor cell growth.

ApplicationThe Human IGF Binding Protein Panel, using the Luminex xMAP technology, enables the simultaneous analysis of 7 IGFBP protein biomarkers in human serum, plasma and cell culture samples.
Key Applications
  • Multiplexing
Application Notes• To prevent possible IGFBP proteolysis, it is recommended that a protease inhibitor cocktail solution be added to each blood sample after blood collection.
• A 2-hour sample incubation may be used, however, for optimal sensitivity, use an overnight (16-18 hour) incubation.
• Serum and plasma samples require (recommend) a 1:25 dilution with Assay Buffer.
• Tissue culture supernatants may be run neat or appropriately diluted in control medium. Each well requires 25 μL of sample, standard or control.
