IGF 1 DES
Synonyms: IGF-1 Des (1-3), Des1-3, Des 1-3, Des (1-3), IGF-1 (4-70)
IGF1 DES also goes by the name Insulin-Like Growth Factor (IGF)-1 (4-70). In its structure, it contains 67 amino acids, and it has a molecular mass of 7,372 Da. Studies on cultured cells show that DES (1-3) IGF is about 10 times as potent as IGF-1 in stimulating hypertrophy and proliferation in the cells.
IGF-1 DES shares close similarities with IGF-1. In its structure, the number of amino acids ranges between 4-70. The IGF-1 DES originates from the IGF-1 family of peptides known for their essential role in the growth and development of mammals. IGF-1 DES facilitates physiological altering protein changes. Previous studies show that growth hormone had no direct effects in the incorporation of sulfate into cartilage but it was somewhat mediated via a serum factor which was currently via truncation is termed, DES IGF-1
