Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family ligands (GFL) are potent survival factors and regulators for central and peripheral neurons. GFLs bind to specific glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored co-receptors (GFRalpha1-alpha4), but signal through a common c-Ret receptor. Both GPI-anchored and soluble...

Members of the GDNF protein family signal through receptors consisting of a GPI-linked GFRalpha subunit and the transmembrane tyrosine kinase Ret. Here we characterize the mouse Gfra4 and show that it undergoes developmentally regulated alternative splicing in several tissues. The...
