General description

IGF2R (insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor) is a transmembrane glycoprotein. It is one of the two mannose 6-phosphate (M6P) receptors found in mammalian cells. It has 15 consecutive repeating regions making up a repetitive structure. The domains 3 and 9 contain M6P-binding sites. Domain 5 contains M6P-N-acetylglucosamine residue- binding site. The IGF-II binding site is located in domain 11. It belongs to p-lectin family and has a molecular weight of 300kDa. It has an N-terminal, a small cytosolic C-terminal, a transmembrane region and a large exosolic domain.


Cation-independent mannose-6-phosphate receptor precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-IGF2R antibody produced in rabbit, a Prestige Antibody, is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org). Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. The antibodies are also tested using immunofluorescence and western blotting. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit sigma.com/prestige.

Biochem/physiol Actions

IGF2R (insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor) regulates multiple cellular processes such as, cell survival, proliferation, migration and invasion, endocytosis, lysosomal trafficking. Its ligands are divided in two major classes- mannose 6-phosphate (M6P)-containing and non-M6P. The former class includes lysosomal acid hydrolases, TGF (transforming growth factor)-β, proliferin, thyroglobulin, and granzyme B, while the latter class includes mitogen, plasminogen, insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) and retinoic acid. Binding of plasminogen to IGF2R leads to the conversion and activation of plasminogen to plasmin. This gene is also mutated in multiple cancers where it might lead to tumorigenesis. It is down-regulated in breast cancer where it supposedly facilitates tumorigenesis. It decreases the metastatic capacity of receptor-deficient SCC-VII squamous cell carcinoma cells, which in turn is modulated by M6P-binding site within domain 3.
