Abstract

Administration of a Synthetic Peptide Derived from the E-domain Region of Mechano-Growth Factor Delays Decompensation Following Myocardial Infarction

Insulin like growth factor-I (IGF-1) isoforms expressed differ structurally in their E-domain regions and their temporal expression profile in response to injury. We and others have reported that Mechano-growth factor (MGF), which is equivalent to human IGF-1c and rodent IGF-1Eb isoforms, is expressed acutely following myocardial infarction (MI) in the mouse heart.

Keywords: IGF-1 isoforms; E-domain; Myocardial Infarction; Cardiovascular function
