IGF1

(redirected from Mechano growth factor)

IGF1

A gene on chromosome 12q23.2 that encodes a protein, similar to insulin in structure and function, which belongs to a family of proteins involved in mediating growth and development.

Molecular pathology
IGF1 mutations are a cause of insulin-like growth factor I deficiency.
