Identification and in Situ Localization of the Insulin-like Growth Factor-II/mannose-6-phosphate ( IGF-II/M6P) Receptor in the Rat Gastrointestinal Tract: Comparison with the IGF-I Receptor.
Endocrinology 129, 1769-1778 (1991)
In the present study we investigated pharmacological, biochemical, and immunological characteristics as well as the tissue distribution of the insulin-like growth factor-II/man nose-6-phosphate (IGF-II/M6P) receptor in the rat gastrointestinal tract, and compared the data with those from corresponding experiments for the IGF-I receptor. Competitive binding and affinity cross-linking studies with [125I]IGF-II, and [125I]IGF-I respectively, in rat jejunum yielded results analogous to those previously obtained for IGF-II/M6P and IGF-I receptors in intestinal epithelial membranes and other tissues. Furthermore, the IGF-II/M6P receptor antibody no. 3637 completely inhibited the association of [125I]IGF-II with receptor protein but nonimmune antibody did not, providing additional evidence for the presence of the IGF-II/M6P receptor in the rat gut. Also, analysis of the IGF-II/M6P receptor by immunoblotting using antiserum no. 3637 identified a specific band of mol wt 220.000 throughout the gastrointestinal tract with the highest content of immunoreactivity being present in colon and ileum.
