Rabbit Anti-Human GDNF Family Receptor Alpha 1 (GFRα-1) recognizes Human GFRα-1. This polyclonal antibody was purified using affinity chromatography.
GDNF family receptor alpha 1, also known as GFRA1 is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol(GPI)-linked cell surface receptor for both GDNF and NTN, and mediates activation of the RET tyrosine kinase receptor. GFRalpha1 functions as a ligand-induced cell adhesion molecule (LICAM) to establish precise synaptic contacts and induce presynaptic differentiation.1
