Product Description:CDNF, human
Cerebral dopamine neurotrophic factor (CDNF), also known as ARMET-like protein 1, is encoded by the CDNF gene in humans and widely expressed in neuronal and non-neuronal tissues. The CDNF is a novel neurotrophic factor with strong trophic activity on dopaminergic neurons comparable to that of glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF). Furthermore, it also prevents the 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced degeneration of dopaminergic neurons. By research, CDNF might be beneficial for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Recombinant human CDNF contains 162 amino acid residues and it shares 81 % and 84 % a.a. sequence identity with murine and rat CDNF.
