ATF1, ATF2, HFB1-GDNF, GDNF.
GDNF promotes the survival and differentiation of neurons in culture, and is able to prevent apoptosis of motor neurons induced by axotomy. The encoded protein is processed to a mature secreted form that exists as a homodimer. The mature form of the protein is a ligand for the product of the RET (rearranged during transfection) protooncogene. In addition to the transcript encoding GDNF, two additional alternative transcripts encoding distinct proteins, referred to as astrocyte-derived trophic factors, have also been described. Mutations in this gene may be associated with Hirschsprung disease.
GDNF enhances survival and morphological differentiation of neurons and increases their high-affinity uptake.
Glial derived Neurotrophic Factor Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated homodimer containing 2 x 135 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 30.2kDa.
GDNF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
GDNF was lyophilized with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Glial Derived Neurotrophic Factor in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Glial-derived Neurotrophic Factor although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GDNF should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 98.0% as determined by analysis by SDS-PAGE.
