Description: Chromeceptin is an IGF2 inhibitor. Chromeceptin inhibits Insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) signaling by a process that begins with chromeceptin binding to multifunctional protein 2 (MFP-2). This interaction stimulates the expression of IGF binding protein 1 (IGFBP-1) and suppressor of cytokine signaling-3 (SOCS-3), both of which activate signal transducers and activators of transcription 6 (STAT6) to attenuate IGF signals.
