Title: Insulin-like growth factors and insulin-like growth factor binding proteins in wounds / James Gray Robertson
Author: Robertson, James Gray
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Surgery
Abstract: Thesis aimed to determine general roles for insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs) in regulating insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) actions in wound repair. Preliminary experiments sought to characterise alterations to IGF-I levels and IGFBP profiles that may occur during wound repair. The effects that interactions with IGFBPs may have on IGF actions in wounds were addressed. Final experiments aimed to determine whether IGFBP-3 proteolysis observed in the initial work of the thesis acted to increase IGF bioavailablity. The results are discussed.
