SummaryA cDNA probe corresponding to mRNA encoding human somatomedin-C/insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) was used for the chromosomal assignment of the IGF-I gene. Southern-blot hybridization analysis of DNA from human-Chinese hamster somatic cell hybrids showed that the IGF-I gene is located on chromosome 12. Comparison of the chromosomal assignments of the IGF-I gene and two other members of the insulin gene family, with three c-ras oncogenes, reveals a remarkable association of the two… 
Chromosomal localization and preliminary characterization of the human gene encoding insulin-like growth factor II
TLDR
Southern blot hybridization analysis of DNA from human-Chinese hamster somatic cell hybrids showed that the human IGF-II gene is located on chromosome 11, and restriction enzyme analysis revealed that the gene encoding IGF- II has a discontinuous structure and contains at least four exons.
Role of Alternatively Spliced Messenger RNA (mRNA) Isoforms of the Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF1) in Selected Human Tumors
TLDR
The presence of different IGF1 transcripts suggests tissue-specific auto- and/or paracrine action, as well as separate regulation of both of these gene promoters involvement in tumor biology.
Insulin-like Growth Factor Gene Expression in Human Smooth Muscle Tumors 1
TLDR
Data suggest that for IGF-I a role in tumor cell growth is not likely, but probably IGF-II is involved in malignant smooth muscle tumor growth progression.
Muscle Tumors Insulin-like Growth Factor Gene Expression in Human Smooth Updated Version
TLDR
Data suggest that for IGF-I a role in tumor cell growth is not likely, but probably IGF-II is involved in malignant smooth muscle tumor growth progression.
Polymorphism and mapping of the IGF1 gene, and absence of association with stature among African Pygmies
TLDR
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and direct sequencing failed to demonstrate an alteration in the region upstream the IGF1 start site in Pygmies, and linkage analysis demonstrated that IGF1 is tightly linked to the phenylalanine hydroxylase gene on chromosome 12q22–24.
The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) signaling axis and hepatitis C virus-associated carcinogenesis (review).
TLDR
Dysregulation of IGF signaling in HCC was concluded to occur predominantly at the level of IGF-2 bioavailability, and Manifestation of various mRNA transcripts and IGF-1 proteins and their potential involvement in carcinogenesis are discussed.
Central IGF1 improves glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in mice
TLDR
This is the first study demonstrating that central IGF1 regulates several important metabolic functions, including increased appetite, improved glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, decreased Pomc levels in the hypothalamus, and increased UCP1 expression in brown fat tissue.
The secret life of nuclear IGF-1R : functions beyond traditional signaling pathways
TLDR
It is shown that nuclear IGF-1R takes a more direct part in gene transcription in addition to its classical role as a cell surface receptor in cancer cells, and a mechanism by which IGF- 1R is transported into the nucleus is proposed, providing novel findings about IGF-2R function and trafficking.

Human chromosomal mapping of genes for insulin-like growth factors I and II and epidermal growth factor
TLDR
The chromosomal mapping of the human genes for IGF-I and IGF-II is reported, and it is speculated that these map assignments reflect the existence of gene families involved in growth control.
Localization of insulin-like growth factor genes to human chromosomes 11 and 12
TLDR
The IGF-II gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 11 with a ras protooncogene and the insulin structural gene, and the existence of a fragment length polymorphism is suggested using the IGF-I probe.
The human gene for the beta subunit of nerve growth factor is located on the proximal short arm of chromosome 1.
Fragments of the recently cloned human gene for the beta subunit of nerve growth factor (beta-NGF) were used as hybridization probes in analyzing two sets of rodent-human somatic cell hybrids for the
Isolation of the human insulin‐like growth factor I gene using a single synthetic DNA probe.
A single synthetic oligonucleotide was employed as hybridization probe to detect and enable isolation of the human insulin‐like growth factor I (IGF‐I) gene from a human genomic DNA library. The
Sequence of cDNA encoding human insulin-like growth factor I precursor
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence of a human liver cDNA encoding the complete amino acid sequence of IGF-I is reported, providing evidence that IGF-i is synthesized as a precursor protein and that formation of IGFs from this precursor requires proteolytic processing at both ends.
Assigning the polymorphic human insulin gene to the short arm of chromosome 11 by chromosome sorting
TLDR
Simultaneous sorting of the normal homolog from this small derivative chromosome separated the two different sized insulin gene-containing restriction fragments in this individual, indicating that the two restriction fragments represent insulin gene polymorphism and not duplicate gene loci.
Molecular cloning and chromosomal assignment of the human homolog of int-1, a mouse gene implicated in mammary tumorigenesis
TLDR
The human homolog of this putative mammary oncogene is cloned and its structure is compared to that of the mouse gene by heteroduplex analysis.
Regional chromosomal localization of N-ras, K-ras-1, K-ras-2 and myb oncogenes in human cells.
TLDR
The non-random aberrations in chromosomes 1, 6 and 12 that occur in certain human tumors suggest possible etiologic involvement of ras and/or myb oncogenes in such tumors.
The N-ras oncogene assigned to the short arm of human chromosome 1.
TLDR
The results indicate that the N-ras oncogene (RASN) is localized on the proximal part of the short arm of human chromosome 1, in region p3200 leads to cen.
Structure and organization of the human Ki-ras proto-oncogene and a related processed pseudogene
TLDR
Analysis of the organization and nucleotide sequence of two human loci related to the transforming gene of Kirsten murine sarcoma virus establishes one as a functional gene and the other as a processed pseudogene, suggesting that the functional gene may specify either of two related polypeptides depending on the pattern of RNA splicing.
