Pegylated Mechano-growth factor (PEG-MGF) Research

Pegylated Mechano-growth factor (PEG-MGF) is a truncated and slightly altered form of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Research shows that it stimulates myoblast (muscle cell) proliferation and differentiation. It has also been explored in research focused on increasing endurance, boosting the function of the immune system, lowering cholesterol, and reducing total body fat. There is also some evidence to suggest that PEG-MGF improves immune function related to healing and could therefore less the time it takes for wounds to heal.

Mechano Growth Factor MGF Research

MGF is a splice variant of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). MGF is therefore a naturally occurring peptide, though it can be produced synthetically. It has been discovered to play important roles in tissue growth, wound healing, cardiac repair, and more. It is especially important to muscle repair following injury, after weight training, and in the setting of disease. The peptide has increasingly been of interest in research circles for its ability to protect against mechanical overload and lead to healing in otherwise-slow-to-heal tissues like cartilage.
