Abstract. Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 6 (IGFBP6), an extracellular protein with preferential affinity for insulin-like growth factor (IGF) II, belongs to a family of binding proteins with at least six members. We have characterized the genomic structure and the chromosomal location of the human IGFBP6, which is present in the human genome as a single-copy gene spanning 4.7 kb. It consists of four exons, encoding the translated regions, with sizes of 334, 146, 120, and 123 bp… 
Structure and transcription regulation of the human insulin-like growth factor binding protein 4 gene (IGFBP4).
TLDR
It is shown that the human IGFBP4 gene is contained within 15.3 kb with the transcription initiation site located 28 bp downstream of a TATA box sequence and 286 bp upstream of the translation initiation codon.
Functional analysis of insulin-like growth factor binding protein -4 and -6 in transgenic mice
TLDR
It is revealed that overexpression of IGFBP-4 had no significant effect on the postnatal body and organ growth, except that the weight and volume of thymus in 8- and 12-week-old transgenic mice were significantly reduced compared to the controls.
Organization of human ACAT-2 gene and its cell-type-specific promoter activity.
TLDR
Using promoter-luciferase reporter assays, it is demonstrated the transcriptional activity of ACAT-2 gene promoter is high in Caco-2 cells, especially after these cells become postconfluent and behave as intestinal enterocytes.

TLDR
The data suggest that the duplicated igfbp-6 genes encode two functionally similar proteins, but they have evolved distinct spatial and temporal expression patterns, and have provided novel insight into the structural and functional evolution of the IGFBP gene family.

TLDR
Evidence suggests that certain lifestyles, such as one involving a high-energy diet, may increase IGF-I levels, a finding that is supported by animal experiments indicating that IGFs may abolish the inhibitory effect of energy restriction on cancer growth.
Multi-hormonal regulation of IGFBP-6 expression in human neuroblastoma cells.
TLDR
The results confirm the high sensitivity of IGFBP-6 expression to these differentiation agents, essentially at transcriptional level.
Characterization of ScAP-23, a new cell line from murine subcutaneous adipose tissue, identifies genes for the molecular definition of preadipocytes.
TLDR
A new cell culture model from adipocyte precursors present in C57BL/6 mouse subcutaneous WAT is generated and demonstrates that comparative gene expression studies of ScAP-23 and 3T3-L1 adipogenesis may be particularly fruitful in identifying preadipocyte-expressed genes that play a role in adipose tissue physiology and/or pathophysiology.

TLDR
An initial glimpse is provided at the molecular mechanisms underlying the neuroprotective actions of IGF-I in the aging brain through changes in the hippocampal transcriptome of old rodents.

Structural characterization of the rat insulin-like growth factor binding protein-6 gene.
TLDR
The promoter region of the rat IGFBP-6 gene is devoid of a TATA or a CAAT consensus sequence motif, but putative regulatory cis elements, including a Sp1, an estrogen receptor binding site and a retinoic acid responsive element, are present in the promoter region.

TLDR
The IGFBP-2 gene lacks a TATA box immediately up-stream from the transcription initiation site and contains GC boxes that might be recognized by transcription factors Sp1 or ETF, but the promoter region contains multiple direct and indirect repeats.
