Abstract

The forms of somatomedin present in the adult human brain have been characterized in this study. Two peptides were purified by acidification, size exclusion chromatography, affinity chromatography, FPLC and HPLC. structural analysis identified these peptides as the variant form of IGF-1 with a truncated N-terminal region earlier isolated from human fetal brain and IGF-2. The presence of the truncated IGF-1 variant and IGF-2 in the human CNS suggests their role as neuropeptides. © 1986.
