The interactions of 125I-multiplication stimulating activity (MSA) and 125I-ovine somatomedin with receptors on skeletal muscle satellite cells are described. Specific binding of 125I-MSA/rIGF-II was inhibited by MSA/rIGF-II and oSm but not by insulin. Binding of 125I-oSm was inhibited by MSA/rIGF-II, oSm and insulin. In addition, 24-h pre-incubation of satellite cells with insulin increased the amount of 125I-MSA/rIGF-II bound, but insulin concentrations below 550 μg/l had no effect on the subsequent binding of 125I-oSm. Pre-incubation of cultures with oSm or MSA/rIGF-II decreased the subsequent binding of 125I-oSm and 125I-MSA/rIGF-II. These preliminary experiments suggest that oSm is similar to IGF-I in its binding characteristics and that primary cultures of skeletal muscle satellite cells possess type I and type II IGF receptors.
