Insulin like growth factor binding protein 5 (IGFBP5) is a biomarker with clinical application prospects related to various tumors. As an expert in the field of biomarkers, Creative BioMart Biomarker has an experienced technical team and a mature cancer biomarker detection platform, which can provide customers with fast, accurate and sensitive IGFBP5 test results, helping customers shorten the research cycle and reduce research costs.
IGFBP is a key regulator of insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and contains six protein families (IGFBP1, IGFBP2, IGFBP3, IGFBP4, IGFBP5, IGFBP6), and IGFBP5 is one of them that have the relatively more conserved building blocks. IGFs are a class of growth factors with mitogenic and metabolic activities, which can activate the tyrosine kinase pathway by binding to the receptors on the cell surface. IGFBP5 regulates the function of IGF by binding to the conserved domain of IGF. IGFBP5 is localized in the cytoplasm and nucleus, and its combination with IGF may inhibit physiological activities such as proliferation and differentiation. The IGF system participates in many important functions in the human body, including proliferation, differentiation, tumor migration, and invasion. It can be used in clinical diagnosis and disease pathological development monitoring, such as cancer progression and endocrine responsiveness. IGF is up-regulated during tumorigenesis, and IGFBP5 is thought to regulate tumor proliferation and spread, reflecting the development and metastasis of cancer. Therefore, IGFBP5 is considered to be a biomarker for clinical treatment responses and clinical outcomes of various tumors, such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, bladder cancer, thyroid cancer, cervical cancer, salivary gland cancer, etc. IGFBP5 is differentially expressed in cancer tissues, which may be related to the degree of cell differentiation in different cancers. At the same time, the increase of IGFBP5 level is also related to tumor metastasis and migration, so IGFBP5 can be used in tumor research to indicate whether the tumor has metastasized or migrated. IGFBP5 is related to the prognosis of various cancers, and can be used as a prognostic biomarker for breast cancer, ovarian cancer, glioblastoma, etc., indicating clinical results, response to treatment, and survival rate. IGFBP5 is a promising biomarker in various tumor researches, and also has development potential in the development of cancer drugs.
