Recombinant Rat Glial Cell-derived Neurotrophic Factor
Astrocyte-derived Trophic Factor
Glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) is a small protein that promotes the survival of various neuronal subpopulations in both the central as well as the peripheral nervous systems at different stages of their development. GDNF is a founding member of the GDNF family of ligands (GFL) and has been shown to interact with GDNF family receptor alpha 1 (GDNFA1) and GDNFA2. Rat GDNF exists as a homodimer and contains seven conserved cysteine residues, one of which (Cys 101) is used for inter-chain disulfide bridging while the others are involved in intramolecular ring formation known as the cystine knot configuration.
