Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, hGDNF, Astrocyte-derived trophic factor, ATF, ATF1, ATF2, HFB1-GDNF, HSCR3.
Glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor or GDNF is part of the GDNF group of ligands proteins. GDNF has a crucial part in numerous cell mechanisms such as neurite outgrowth, cell differentiation, cell survival and migration of cells. GDNF enhances neurons survival via GFRa receptors (mainly GFRa1). The mentioned neurons can die as a result from Parkinson's disease or ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). This protein takes part in the development of the spermatogenesis & kidney, also, it has a role in alcohol metabolism as ameliorating.
GDNF Human Recombinant produced in Baculovirus is a single glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 113amino acids (109-211 aa) and having a molecular mass of 12.8kDa.
GDNF is fused to an 10 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
GDNF protein (0.25mg/ml) contains 10% glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
