IGF-I action is essential for the regulation of tissue formation and remodeling, bone growth, prenatal growth, brain development, and muscle metabolism. Cellular effects of IGF-I are mediated through the IGF-I receptor, a transmembrane tyrosine kinase that phosphorylates intracellular substrates, resulting in the activation of multiple intracellular signaling cascades. Dysregulation of IGF-I actions due to impairment in the postreceptor signaling machinery may contribute to multiple diseases in humans. This article will review current information on IGF-I signaling and illustrate recent results demonstrating how impaired IGF-I signaling and action may contribute to the pathogenesis of human diseases, including osteoporosis, neurodegenerative disorders, and reduced fetal growth in utero.

Abstract

IGF-I action is essential for the regulation of tissue formation and remodeling, bone growth, prenatal growth, brain development, and muscle metabolism. Cellular effects of IGF-I are mediated through the IGF-I receptor, a transmembrane tyrosine kinase that phosphorylates intracellular substrates, resulting in the activation of multiple intracellular signaling cascades. Dysregulation of IGF-I actions due to impairment in the postreceptor signaling machinery may contribute to multiple diseases in humans. This article will review current information on IGF-I signaling and illustrate recent results demonstrating how impaired IGF-I signaling and action may contribute to the pathogenesis of human diseases, including osteoporosis, neurodegenerative disorders, and reduced fetal growth in utero.
