Technical Data
Gdnf (Glial Cell Line-derived Neurotrophic Factor, mGDNF, Astrocyte-derived Trophic Factor, ATF)
Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) has been identified as a potent neurotrophic factor that enhances survival of midbrain dopaminergic neurons. GDNF is a glycosylated, disulfide-bonded homodimer. It promotes the survival and morphological differentiation of dopaminergic neurons and increases their high-affinity dopamine uptake. On the basis of these findings, it has been suggested that GDNF may play a role in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, which is marked by progressive degeneration of midbrain dopaminergic neurons.
