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.
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).
GFRA1 filtered (0.4 µm) and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml in phosphate buffered saline pH 7.5 containing 5 % (w/v) trehalose.
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.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
