Entry term(s) factor de crecimiento similar a la insulina
factor de sulfatación
factores de crecimiento de tipo insulina
Scope note: Polipéptidos de tipo insulina fabricados por el hígado y algunos fibroblastos y liberados a la circulación sanguínea cuando son estimulados por la SOMATOTROPINA. Producen la incorporación de sulfato al colágeno, síntesis de ARN y de ADN, que son requisitos para la división celular y crecimiento del organismo.
