Objective: Isoforms of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) gene encodes different IGF-1 isoforms by alternative splicing, and which are known to play distinct roles in muscle growth and repair. These isoforms in humans exist as IGF-1Ea, IGF-1Eb and IGF-1Ec (the latter is also known as mechano-growth factor). We sought to determine whether mRNA expression of any of these isoforms is impaired in skeletal muscle of humans with obesity, and given that humans with obesity display reduced protein synthesis in muscle.
