Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human GDNF (Catalog # 212-GD)
Recombinant Rat GDNF (Catalog # 512-GF)
Measured by its ability to neutralize the effect of GDNF on dorsal root ganglion neurons from E10 chick embryos. Davies, A. M. (1989) in Neurotrophic Factor Bioassay Using Dissociated Neurons, Nerve Growth Factor. Rush, R. A. (eds): John Willey and Sons, Ltd. 95. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 2.5-5 µg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL Recombinant Human GDNF.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Neuron Survival in Response to GDNF and Neutralization by Human GDNF Antibody. Recombinant Human GDNF (Catalog # 212-GD) supports the survival of dorsal root ganglion neurons from E10 chick embryos in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by MTT staining. Neuron survival elicited by Recombinant Human GDNF (10 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human/Rat GDNF Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AB‑212‑NA). The ND50 is typically 2.5-5 µg/mL.

Background: GDNF

Glial Cell Line-derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF) is a neurotrophic factor that has been shown to promote the survival of various neuronal subpopulations in both the central as well as the peripheral nervous systems at different stages of their development. Neuronal subpopulations that have been shown to be affected by GDNF include motoneurons, midbrain dopaminergic neurons, Purkinje cells and sympathetic neurons.

Native GDNF, a disulfide-linked homodimeric glycoprotein, is a novel member of the TGF-beta  superfamily. Human GDNF cDNA encodes a 211 amino acid residue prepropeptide that is processed to yield a dimeric protein. Mature human GDNF was predicted to contain two 134 amino acid residue subunits. NS0 expressed mature human GDNF lacks 31 residues from the amino-terminus of the predicted sequence. This glycosylated recombinant mature human GDNF still contains the seven conserved Cys residues found in all members of the TGF-beta superfamily and is biologically active. The GDNF sequence contains two potential glycosylation sites and insect cell-expressed recombinant rat GDNF proteins are glycosylated. Mature rat and human GDNF exhibit approximately 93% amino acid sequence identity and show considerable species cross-reactivity. Cells known to express GDNF include Sertoli cells, type 1 astrocytes, Schwann cells, neurons, pinealocytes and skeletal muscle cells.
