Growth/differentiation factor 2 (GDF-2)

Links to databases


GDF-2 is a glycosilated cytokine that belongs to the transforming growth factor beta superfamily. Its functions include maintaining neurotransmitter responsiveness of embryonic basal forebrain cholinergic neurons and orthotopic bone formation.GDF-2 is also a potent circulating angiogenesis inhibitor.

Growth/differentiation factor 2 (GDF-2)


    • Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 9%
    • Between run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 11%

Precision (repeatability) is calculated from linearized NPX values over LOD.
