An alternative product for purchase is Z03576.

Glia Maturation Factor beta (GMF-beta) is a 17 kDa brain specific protein that belongs to the ADF/cofilin superfamily. It is a neurotrophin that induces maturation of neurons and glial cells. Unlike other neurotrophins, GMF-β lacks a leader sequence and can be phosphorylated by protein kinase A and protein kinase C suggesting its role in signal transduction. GMF-β is a prominent mediator of inflammation in the central nervous system and can activate several inflammation-related genes such as tumor necrosis factor-α and interleukin-1β. Researchers have shown there are significantly higher levels of GMF-β protein in all the effected regions of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) brains suggesting an important role of GMF-β in AD pathogenesis.
