GDF15 is part of the TGF-Beta superfamily which is involved in regulating inflammatory and apoptotic pathways in injured tissues and throughout disease processes. GDF15 is most abundant in the liver. Its expression in liver can be considerably up-regulated in during injury of organs such as liver, kidney, heart and lung. GDF-15 promotes proliferation or growth arrest and differentiation due to differences in cellular differentiation. GDF15 prevents apoptosis in cerebellar granule neurons by activating Akt and inhibiting endogenously active ERK. GDF15 is a novel autocrine/endocrine factor that antagonizes the hypertrophic response and loss of ventricular performance.
GDF15 Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 138 amino acids (189-303 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 14.9kDa. GDF15 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
