The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Peptide ELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Antibody detection limit dilution 1/16,000.
WB: Use at a concentration of 0.3 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 20 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 20 kDa).
Not yet tested in other applications.

Selectively promotes the survival of dopaminergic neurons of the ventral mid-brain. Modulates GABAergic transmission to the dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra. Enhances spontaneous, as well as evoked, GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents in dopaminergic neurons (By similarity). Inhibits cell proliferation and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress-induced cell death.
Belongs to the ARMET family.
The N-terminal region may be responsible for neurotrophic activity while the C-terminal region may play a role in the ER stress response.
