Induced proliferation of TT cells assay for Human Persephin. Cell proliferation was measured to calculate the ED50, which is as expected less than 20 ng/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 Persephin has a predicted Mw of 20.8 kDa (each monomer is 10.4 kDa).

Persephin is a neurotrophic factor of the glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family. Persephin promotes survival and growth of dopaminergic and motor neurons, but not peripheral neurons. Persephin is a ligand for the RET receptor tyrosine kinase.

Activity Assay

Human Persephin (Animal-Free) is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the ability to induce TT cells proliferation and it is typically less than 20 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 4.0 x 104 units/mg.
