GDNFProtein Product Information
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of rat GDNF (Q07731-1) (Ser78-Ile211) was expressed,with a polyhistide tag at the N-terminus.
Expressed Host:Baculovirus-Insect Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
GDNFProtein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:1. Measured in a cell proliferation assay using SH‑SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 10-50 ng/mL in the presence of Recombinant Rat GFR alpha‑1/GDNF R alpha‑1 His Chimera.
2. Immobilized rat His-GDNF (78-211) at 10 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind rat GFRA1-Fc (cat:80021-R02H), The EC50 of rat GFRA1-Fc (cat:80021-R02H) is 20-46.6 ng/ml.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:His
Molecule Mass:The recombinant rat GDNF consists of 150 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 17.1 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 20 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile 20mM Tris, 500mM NaCl, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
GDNFProtein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor(GDNF) is an important member of the GDNF family of ligands(GFL). The GDNF family of ligands is comprised by four neurotrophic factors: glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), neurturin (NRTN), artemin (ARTN), and persephin (PSPN). It has been found that GFLs play a role in a number of biological processes including cell survival, neurite outgrowth, cell differentiation and cell migration. As the founding member, GDNF plays a key role in the promotion of the survival of dopaminergic neurons. GDNF is a highly conserved neurotrophic factor. The recombinant form of this protein also promotes the survival and differentiation of dopaminergic neurons in culture, and was able to prevent apoptosis of motor neurons induced by axotomy. GDNF also regulates kidney development and spermatogenesis, and it affects alcohol consumption. It has been shown that GDNF results in two Parkinson's disease clinical trial and in a number of animal trials. It has been taken as a potent survival factor for central motoneurons.
