|Application ||WB, IHC-P|
|Calculated MW||51456 Da|
|Purification||Antisera to human GDNFR alpha were raised by repeated immunisation of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG prepared by ion exchange chromatography.|
|Immunogen||Peptide from C terminus of human GDNFR alpha.|
|Shelf Life||18 months from date of despatch.|
|Other Names||GDNF family receptor alpha-1, GDNF receptor alpha-1, GDNFR-alpha-1, GFR-alpha-1, RET ligand 1, TGF-beta-related neurotrophic factor receptor 1, GFRA1, GDNFRA, RETL1, TRNR1|
|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-GDNFα antibody recognizes GDNFR alpha, also known as GFR&alpha-1 (GFRa Nomenclature Committee 1997), GDNF receptor alpha-1, RET ligand 1 or TGF-beta-related neurotrophic factor receptor 1. GFR&alpha-1 is a 465 amino acid ~52 kDa GPI anchored cell surface receptor for glial cell derived neutrophic factor (GDNF).GFR&alpha-1 is highly expressed in human gliomas (Wiesenhoferet al.2000).|
