Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), also called somatomedin C, is is a primary mediator of the effects of growth hormone (GH). Growth hormone stimulates the liver to produce IGF-1. IGF-1 then stimulates systemic body growth, and has growth-promoting effects on almost every cell in the body, especially skeletal muscle, cartilage, bone, liver, kidney, nerves, skin, hematopoietic cell, and lungs. IGF-1 is highly homologous across species.

Alternate Names - IGF1, IGF-I, IGF1A, IGFI, MGF, insulin like growth factor 1, IGF
