To clarify whether glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) receptor alpha-1 (GFRalpha1), the glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked coreceptor for GDNF, is also a functional coreceptor for artemin (ART), we have studied receptor binding, signaling, and neuronal survival. In cell-free binding studies, GFRalpha1-Ig displayed strong preferential(More)
