Storage:  2-8 C in the dark.

Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

IGFBP2 is observed mainly in brain and liquor, showing complex patterns of gene expression during postnatal brain development. Elevated levels IGFBP2 have been observed in the serum of prostate cancer patients. IGFBP2 expression does not depend on Growth hormone. The gene maps to human chromosome 2q33-q34. It contains four exons and has a length of 32 kb. IGFBP2 has been shown to be secreted by intestinal epithelial cells and to capable of limiting the mitogenic activity of both exogenous and endogenous IGF by blocking the association of the growth factors with cell surface binding sites. IGFBP2 has been implicated also in myeloblast differentiation. It shows preferential affinity for IGF-2. Diseases associated with IGFBP2 include malignant ovarian cyst and insulin-like growth factor i.
