Background Members of the glial cell line derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family, including GDNFand neurturin (NTN), play key roles in the control of vertebrate neuron survival anddifferentiation. Physiological responses to NTN require the presence of a novelglycosylphosphadidylinositol linked protein NTNRa, which is a cell surface receptor forNTN. The cDNAs encoding NTNRa from human, rat, chicken, and mouse have beencloned recently. NTNRa was also termed GDNFRb, Ret ligand 2 (RETL2) or TGFbrelated neurotrophic factor receptor 2 (TrnR2) and nominated as GFRa2 recently.GFRa2 binds NTN and mediates activation of RET receptor tyrosine kinase by bothNTN and GDNF. Thus, NTN, GFRa2, and the Ret PTK form a complex to transduceNTN signal and to mediate NTN function. Alternate Names: anti-GDNF family receptor alpha-2 antibody, anti-GFR-alpha-2 antibody, anti-Neurturinreceptor alpha antibody, anti-NTNR-alpha antibody, anti-NRTNR-alpha antibody,anti-TGF-beta-related neurotrophic factor receptor 2 antibody, anti-GDNF receptor betaantibody, anti-GDNFR-beta antibody, anti-RET ligand 2 antibody.
