Induced proliferation of C6 cells assay for Human GDNF. Cell proliferation was measured to calculate the ED50, which is as expected less than 3 μg/ml.
Non-reducing (-) and reducing (+) conditions in a 4 - 20% Tris-Glycine gel stained with Coomassie Blue. 1 μg of protein was loaded in each lane. Human GDNF has a predicted Mw of 30.4 kDa (each monomer is 15.2 kDa).

This growth factor is also available as PODS™ growth factors for sustained release, see here.

Description

Glial cell-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) is a neurotrophic factor that signals through a multicomponent receptor system to activate receptor tyrosine kinase RET signaling. GDNF promotes dopamine uptake, prevents motor neuron apoptosis, and supports the survival and differentiation of neurons.

Activity Assay

Human GDNF is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by a proliferation assay using C6 cells and it is typically less than 3 μg/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 3.3 x 102 units/mg.
