Gene Music using Protein Sequence of IGF1R "INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR 1 RECEPTOR"
Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), also called somatomedin C, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IGF1 gene. IGF-1 has also been referred to as a "sulfation factor" and its effects were termed "nonsuppressible insulin-like activity" (NSILA) in the 1970s.
