Growth and differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15) is a TGFβ family member, made by in the placenta and heart tissues, that has a role in regulating inflammatory and apoptotic pathways. GDF-15 has become an immerging marker of early heart disease and has the potential as being used as a molecule for screening patients for early heart failure. Recombinant human GDF-15 (D-variant) is a non-glycosylated, disulfide linked homodimer. It is comprised of two identical 120 amino acid monomers and has a total molecular mass of 26.8 kDa. There is a His to an Asp substitution at position 7.
