Introduction

GDNF family receptor alpha-1 (GFRA1) belongs to the GDNF receptor family. GFRA1 is a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol(GPI)-linked cell surface receptor for both Glial cell line-derived growth factor (GDNF), neurturin (NTN), and mediates activation of the RET tyrosine kinase receptor. The GFRA1 protein is a potent survival factor for central and peripheral neurons, and is vital for the development of kidneys and the enteric nervous system.

Description

GFRA1 Human Recombinant produced in HEK293 cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain (a.a 25-423) containing 409 amino acids including a 10 a.a C-terminal His tag. The total molecular mass is 46.0kDa (calculated). 

Source

HEK293 cells.

Physical Appearance

Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

GFRA1 filtered (0.4 µm) and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml in phosphate buffered saline pH 7.5 containing 5 % (w/v) trehalose.

Solubility

It is recommended to add 200µl deionized water to prepare a working stock solution of approximately 0.5mg/ml and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely. GFRA1 is not sterile! Please filter the product by an appropriate sterile filter before using it in the cell culture.

Stability

Store lyophilized protein at -20°C. Aliquot the product after reconstitution to avoid repeated freezing/thawing cycles. Reconstituted protein can be stored at 4°C for a limited period of time; it does not show any change after two weeks at 4°C.

Purity

Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
