Rabbit anti GFR alpha-2 antibody recognizes the cell surface receptor for neurturin, designated GFR alpha-2. Neurturin is a member of the GDNF family, and has an important role in the control of vertebrate neuron survival and differentiation. GRF alpha-2 is a ~52 kDa glycoprotein, and is a GPI-linked cell surface receptor.
