Recombinant Human GFR alpha-like His-tag Protein, CF
Recombinant Human GFR alpha-like His-tag Protein, CF Summary
Ser19-Glu351, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Background: GFR alpha-like
GFR alpha -like (GDNF receptor-alpha-like) is a distant member of the GDNFR family of proteins (1). Mature human GFR alpha-like is a 376 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane protein. It contains a 333 aa extracellular domain, a 20 aa transmembrane domain and a 23 aa cytoplasmic domain. Over the extracellular domain, human GFRAL shares 72% and 71% identity with mouse and rat GFRAL respectively. GFRAL is expressed on both fetal and adult hindbrain neurons of the CNS (3), and would appear to function as an anti-apoptotic molecule during neuronal stress. GFRAL is a functional receptor for GDF-15, facilitating weight-loss functions of the protein through c-Ret downstream signaling. GFRAL and GDF-15 signaling is implicated in diet-based obesity and insulin resistance (2-4).
