Immunogen A synthetic peptide (PRVEKTPSLPDDLSD) as a part of human GFR alpha-2 protein (aa: 376-390) conjugated to KLH.
Specificity Western blot analysis indicates a high level of specificity to GFR alpha-2, while there appears to be no cross-reactivity with other members of the GFR family.
Purification Whole antisera
Alternative Name GFRA2 / GDNFR-beta (GFRA2 Antibody Abstract)
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. Related Diseases: Neurotrophic Receptors
Gene Symbol: GFRA2
Gene ID 2675, 25136
Application Notes Immunohistochemistry-P and Western Blot A dilution of 1:500 to 1:1000 is recommended for both applications. This antibody stains beautifully the large neurons in the rat DRG. This antibody also is ideal for WB analysis of rat DRG and brain homogenate. The optimal dilution should be determined by the end user, but a diution of 1 in 500 is recommended for initial testing.
Recommended dilutions: Western Blot 1:500 to 1:1000, Immunohistochemistry-Paraffin 1:500 to 1:1000, Immunohistochemistry
