Technical Data
GFRA2 (GDNF Family Receptor alpha-2, GDNF Receptor alpha-2, GDNFR-alpha-2, GFR-alpha-2, GDNF Receptor beta, GDNFR-beta, Neurturin Receptor alpha, NRTNR-alpha, NTNR-alpha, RET Ligand 2, TGF-beta-related Neurotrophic Factor Receptor 2, GDNFRB, RETL2, TRNR2)
GFRa-2, also known as NTNRa, GDNFRb, Ret ligand 2 (RETL2) or TGFb-related neurotrophic factor receptor 2 (TNR2) binds NTN and mediates activation of RET receptor tyrosine kinase by both NTN and GDNF. GDNF (glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor) is a potent survival factor for central and peripheral neurons. Physiological responses to GDNF require the presence of a novel glycosylphophadidylinositol linked protein GDNFRa.
