MGF Mechano growth factor (MGF) is a novel splice variant of the insulin growth factor -1 (IGF-1), also known as IGF-1Ec in humans and IGF-1Eb in rodents. It is actually originally called MGF because the RNA form of it is expressed in muscle tissues in response to the overload or/and damage. During recent research studies, the expression of IGF-1 splice variants, over the course of the healing and regrowth phase of muscle repair is thought to be the primary mechanism by which the body helps produces new muscle tissue.
