IGFBP6(redirected from insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 6)
IGFBP6A gene on chromosome 12q13 that encodes a member of the insulin-like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP) family that binds insulin-like growth factors I and II and circulates in the plasma. IGFBP6 binding prolongs the half-life of the IGFs and alters their interaction with cell surface receptors.
