||FUNCTION: Receptor for the glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, artemin. Mediates the artemin-induced autophosphorylation and activation of the RET receptor tyrosine kinase (By similarity). SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane; lipid-anchor; GPI-anchor (By similarity). SIMILARITY: Belongs to the GDNFR family.
||See product label
||A synthetic peptide (MGLSWSPRPPL) as part of mouse GFR alpha-3 protein (aa: 1-11) conjugated to KLH
||GDNF family receptor alpha-3; GFR-alpha-3
||IHC, WB. A dilution of 1:500 to 1:1000 is recommended for both applications. This antibody stains nicely large neurons in the rat DRG. Specifically, if you would like to perform WB using rat brain homogenate detecting GFR alpha-3, this is the antibody to be used. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||Western blot analysis indicates a high level of specificity to GFR alpha-3 for this antiserum.
||This antibody is known to react with rat GFR alpha-2.
||If you would like to use this product in another species other than those specified here, or to see the shared ID between the immunogen used here in different speices and/or other molecules, simply copy the immunogen (from the Immunogen field) and paste it HERE and blast/format it. Note that, antisera raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide ie, only one single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule. Regardless, you can always contact us if you need assistance with this.
||Reconstitute in 100 µl of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
||After reconstitution keep aliquots at -20ºC for a higher stability, and at 4ºC with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
