Introduction: Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) has a key role in cell proliferation, differentiation, migration, and survival. Different IGF-I mRNA transcripts, such as IGF-IEc (mechano growth factor, MGF), are produced by alternative splicing. MGF has been implicated in muscle regeneration process as well as in the pathophysiology of various types of cancer.
