Description
 
ARTN

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the glial cell line-derived neurotophic factor (GDNF) family of ligands which are a group of ligands within the TGF-beta superfamily of signaling molecules. GDNFs are unique in having neurotrophic properties and have potential use for gene therapy in neurodegenerative disease. Artemin has been shown in culture to support the survival of a number of peripheral neuron populations and at least one population of dopaminergic CNS neurons. Its role in the PNS and CNS is further substantiated by its expression pattern in the proximity of these neurons. This protein is a ligand for the RET receptor and uses GFR-alpha 3 as a coreceptor. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

With Asterand’s TargetEvaluator® database consisting of more than 2000 XpressWay® Gene Expression Profiles, you are sure to find a target of interest. XpressWay® Profiles consist of high quality target expression in 72 normal human tissues from 3 different donors. The tissues are chosen to be representative of the major organ systems of the human body, and comprise many sub-dissected regions. Total RNA is isolated from tissues using Asterand’s standard methodologies, and gene expression is measured using highly sensitive and quantitative real time-PCR. Target gene transcripts are multiplexed with GAPDH as a control for the PCR process. Each XpressWay Sample Report presents visual expression profiles and a complete data set for your gene of interest.

Profiles are purchased with a license and you will be provided in a full profile report. While any number of profiles may be purchased, if you are purchasing more than 20 profiles, please contact advantage@asterand.com so that your Regional Business Development Director may contact you for special tiered pricing.
