Background: Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF1) belongs to the family of Insulin-like growth factors that are structurally homologous to proInsulin. Mature IGFs are generated by proteolytic processing of inactive precursor proteins; which contains the N- and C-terminal propeptide regions. Mature human IGF-I consisting of 70 amino acids has 94% identity with mouse IGF-I and exhibits cross-species activity. IGF-1 binds IGF-IR; IGF-IIR; and the Insulin receptor and plays a key role in cell cycle progression; cell proliferation and tumor progression. IGF-1 expression is regulated by growth hormone. R3 IGF-1 is an 83 amino acid analog of IGF-1 comprising the complete human IGF-1 sequence with the substitution of an Arg (R) for the Glu(E) at position three; hence R3; and a 13 amino acid extension peptide at the N terminus. R3 IGF-1 has been produced with the purpose of increasing biological activity. R3 IGF-1 is significantly more potent than human IGF-I in vitro.
