Peptide corresponding to amino acids 377 to 391of human GFRa-2. The amino acid sequences ofimmunogenic peptide are identical to those of mouse andrat.
Members of the glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor(GDNF) family, including GDNF and neurturin (NTN),play key roles in the control of vertebrate neuron survivaland differentiation. Physiological responses to NTN requirethe presence of a novel glycosylphosphadidylinositollinked protein NTNRa, which is a cell surface receptor forNTN. The cDNAs encoding NTNRa from human, rat,chicken, and mouse have been cloned recently. NTNRa was also termed GDNFRb, Ret ligand 2 (RETL2)or TGF-b-related neurotrophic factor receptor 2 (TrnR2) and nominated as GFRa-2 recently. GFRa-2 binds NTN and mediates activation of RET receptor tyrosine kinase by both NTN and GDNF. Thus, NTN, GFRa-2, and the Ret PTK form a complex to transduce NTN signal andto mediate NTN function.
