Conflicting MGF info
I was just checking out the meso page and I read the roberts article regarding mgf use he says to inject pwo but the mgf handbook says 24 hours before. I'll stick with the 24 hours before routine though. But I just want to see what anyone else has to say about this. I'm aware that he says PEGmgf is worthless though so thats another reason why im sticking with the 24 hours before twice a week routine.

Really? I never knew that I actually used to read his work on meso. I used some of it to defend my paper on the use of steroids (for healthy well educated adoloscent males only). I feel like an idiot...Originally Posted by Grunt76
Oh I hope you don't mind me asking if I can do calf shots with a slin pin for mgf.

That's hiliarious and awesome Mach.
Reps for you! (Not as someone affliated with the manufacturer - as a person of reason...)
Edit - I just gave Mach a star. Now - we have a bond. Awwwwwww.

Dude, I had that Sig up when you were chapping on my Groin Lift avatar! Do you like Monica? Thanks for the Star. Never knew how people got one. I openly asked him in a thread about MGF I believe over at AR. His buddies started coming out of the woodwork to defend him but he just wouldn't reply. When he came out with Fadogia Agrestis, he was talking about it somewhere. I can't remember if I asked him in that thread again or not. I may have to head over there and ask His Highness again. I'm like a pittbull, I lock on until someone pulls me off or hits me in the head with a 2x4.Originally Posted by jmh80

This is the first time I saw it.
Did that exchange take place at ABCDEFG?
Tread lightly - there are alot of bozo's that bash IBE for no good reason.
I mean alot.

Um... am I missing a joke cuz I'm exhausted? AR does all the writeups for one of the companies that sells pegMGF, Targex, and other "research peptides." Yes, I've concluded that there is a joke that went over my head.
01-07-2007, 10:26 PM
No he doesn't. He only writes stuff for a place that has regular MGF.Originally Posted by Viator
That's why he won't endorse PEG MGF.
01-07-2007, 11:13 PM
Bingo.Originally Posted by jmh80
And if the company has something they can pass off as pegylated MGF, he will put out a text saying there was some new research that just got done and finally he thinks it is good after all...

Uh... No, T**research.net sellls pegMGF and AR does their writeups. I'm not sure about posting links cuz I've already had many a thread pulled by the mods here, but the missing starred-out letters are the third and nineteenth letters of the alphabet.
If he isn't writing copy for them, they could be ripping copy from his book w/o permission, which happens to me all the time (not from my book it isn't published yet; from articles)

Just checked it out. Very interesting. They may have a connection with AR because they also mention "the place that sells all of the protein."

Here it is what I found on another board:
Mechano Growth Factor (MGF)
Mechano Growth Factor (MGF):a local growth factor or a local tissue repair factor. MGF is derived from the insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), but its sequence differs from the systemic IGF-1 produced by the liver. MGF is expressed as a form of IGF-1 by mechanically overloaded muscle when mechanical resistance is applied to muscles (such as weight training). At this point, the IGF-1 gene is spliced to produce IGF-1Ec (which is another name for MGF). It is expressed as a pulse following muscle damage and is apparently involved in the activation of muscle satellite cells. This production of MGF can stimulate satellite cells into activation, to create new muscle fiber. MGF also promotes nitrogen retention and new protein synthesis. It could actually be the case that this particular expression of MGF (IGF-1Ec) is an important part of the deciding factors in whether a muscle will grow or not. The introduction of this peptide, either by weight training or by an injection, will cause the affected area to respond by producing new muscle tissue. It would be safe to say that MGF presence in the muscle is one of the most major factors in the anabolic effect of resistance training (weight training). Currently, this compound is being used successfully by bodybuilders, for bringing up lagging body parts as well as overall growth.
MGF is being used successfully by bodybuilders, for bringing up lagging body parts as well as overall growth. The most relevant rodent data has been shown that MGF is a very potent inducer of muscle growth when it’s introduced into the muscle via an intramuscular injection of cDNA. In fact, in one study MGF caused a 20% increase in the weight of the injected muscle within 2 weeks. Further investigation elucidated that this was actually due to an increase in the size of the muscle fibers.
MGF is extremely likely to cause myogenesis during skeletal muscle hypertrophy by contributing to at least by three important molecular processes: increased satellite cell activity, gene transcription and protein translation. Satellite cells in skeletal muscle provide the extra nuclei for postnatal growth and that they are also involved in repair and regeneration following local injury of muscle fibers. In normal adult undamaged tissue, the satellite cells are quiescent and usually detected just beneath the basal lamina. When activated, they commence to coexpress myogenic factors, including c-met, myoD, myf5, and, later, myogenin. When introduced either by weight training or by an injection，MGF appears to stimulate satellite cells into activation. This in turn allows the activation of extra undamaged nuclei required for muscle fiber growth and repair to occur. In addition, the appearance of MGF initiates the upregulation of new protein synthesis. After this initial and short lived burst of splicing, IGF-1 production switches towards producing a systemic release of IGF-1Ea from the liver, which upregulates protein synthesis as well, but over a longer time line. During this process of regenerating muscle, myoblasts are formed to replace and hypercompensate for damaged/destroyed ones, and then theycan either fuse with each other to form totally new myofibers or becomeincorporated into previously damaged (surviving) myofibers. Ultimately, if more myofibers are created than were destroyed (by training) new muscle growth is experienced.
Dosage and Administration
It’s a good way for bodybuilders and other athletes to increase muscle weight by shooting MGF immediately post workout. At this point natural levels of MGF are already elevated. The addition of extra MGF should push more satellite cells towards the formation of new muscle tissue. Administration dosage of MGF should be at about 100mcgs/day, which is injected into the primary muscle trained post workout - half going into that muscle on one side of the body, the other half going into the mirror image of that muscle on the other side. We suggest that a administration of IGF-1, such as IGF-1 Long R3, an hour after shooting of MGF will produce the additional activation of satellite cells, protein translation, and gene transcription. It will force the body to produce much more new tissue than if MGF or IGF are used at any other point during the day, or in a different sequence. It seems that MGF and IGF-1 appear to act synergistically and promote rapid new muscle growth.
Although MGF is a fairly new peptide, recent studies drawing the comparison between IGF-1 and MGF have concluded that MGF is even quicker to produce results. Actually, it’s been found in rodent studies to produce both faster and better results with regards to muscle growth, compared to IGF-1. It has been found by Goldspink G.’group that a single intramuscular injection of MGF cDNA into a mouse muscle resulted in a 25% increase in mean muscle fibre cross section area within three weeks. Similar experiments have been carried out using the systemic or liver type of IGF-1 in an adenoviral vector under the control of a muscle regulatory sequence. However, this took four months to produce a 15% increase and is probably due to the anabolic effect of IGF-1, which is common to all the splice variants. So far as we know, MGF is superior to IGF-1 and HGH for bodybuilders as an anabolic agent and this compound is being used successfully by bodybuilders, for bringing up lagging body parts as well as overall growth.

That basically regurgitated most of what grunt and thegame said, the 20% growth on that study I believe was achieved using a viral gun, not the kind you can buy online. From what ive learned viral guns are more in the range of gene doping because they attach a gene into a virus (after the virus has been deactivated) and inject it into a specimen. The point of the virus being used is that it is incredibly small and that viruses self-replicate. Not the kind we normal folk are accustomed to using. So don't expect to gain 20-30% mass like those mice. Just because it does that in lab rats doesn't mean itll work in humans. Hope that helps ya bud. For now see how things work out like what im doing. Im on a peg and igf run and im loving it.Originally Posted by Maradona

Before or after workout? times oer week?
So are you taking it before you 24 hours before you work out or directly after you work out like the article says. wouldn't it make more sense to do it after. How many times a week do you inject 2,3...just curious.Originally Posted by rageinacage21

2x a week 400mcg a week. 24 Hours before I work out. I follow the Sunday and Wednesday scheme and Igf on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri. 40 mcg each time pwo.Originally Posted by large1

Oh and don't shoot peg pwo it competes for the same receptors as igf does, so it'll be pointless. Hope your reading the game's article not *ahem* mr.robert's.

While it is true that MGF & IGF compete for the same receptors and any given cell cannot obey both signals simultaneously, this is on a per-cell basis. If you keep in mind that you have billions of cells, there will be those that have receptors activated by both pMGF and IGF, rendering the signals probably ineffective, but those will be the exception rather than the rule.
