DPH I activity definition: OBSOLETE. Catalysis of the hydrolysis of dipeptides. [EC:3.4.13.19]
GPI-anchored membrane-bound receptor definition: OBSOLETE (was not defined before being made obsolete). [GOC:ai]
Anchored anatomical plane definition: Anatomical plane which bisects an anatomical structure or anatomical space across two or more anatomical landmarks. Examples: occipital plane, Frankfurt plane, transpyloric plane.
fractalkine biosynthetic process definition: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of fractalkine, a chemokine involved in the control of the key regulatory mechanisms of cell trafficking at sites of inflammation. It exists as a secreted protein and in a membrane-bound form, and exhibits a novel C-X-X-X-C cysteine signature motif. The counterpart of human fractalkine is murine neurotactin; fractalkine is also referred to as CX3C membrane-anchored chemokine or ABCD-3 and has been renamed CX3CL1.

fractalkine metabolic process definition: The chemical reactions and pathways involving fractalkine, a chemokine involved in the control of the key regulatory mechanisms of cell trafficking at sites of inflammation. It exists as a secreted protein and in a membrane-bound form, and exhibits a novel C-X-X-X-C cysteine signature motif. The counterpart of human fractalkine is murine neurotactin; fractalkine is also referred to as CX3C membrane-anchored chemokine or ABCD-3 and has been renamed CX3CL1.

GDNF Family Receptor Alpha-2 definition: GDNF family receptor alpha-2 protein (464 aa, 52 kD) is a cell communication process protein that is encoded by the human GFRA2 gene and has a role in the transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase signaling pathway.
anchored to membrane definition: Tethered to a membrane by a covalently attached anchor, such as a lipid moiety, that is embedded in the membrane. When used to describe a protein, indicates that none of the peptide sequence is embedded in the membrane. [GOC:mah]
anchored to external side of plasma membrane definition: Tethered to the plasma membrane by a covalently attached anchor, such as a lipid moiety, that is embedded in the membrane, with the bulk of the gene product located on the side opposite to the side that faces the cytoplasm. When used to describe a protein, indicates that the peptide sequence does not span the membrane. [GOC:mah]
anchored to plasma membrane definition: Tethered to the plasma membrane by a covalently attached anchor, such as a lipid moiety, that is embedded in the membrane. When used to describe a protein, indicates that the peptide sequence does not span the membrane. [GOC:mah]
GFRA2 wt Allele definition: Human GFRA2 wild-type allele is located within 8p21 and is approximately 108 kb in length. This allele, which encodes GDNF family receptor alpha-2 protein, is involved in the control of neuron survival and differentiation.
Anchored fiat anatomical line definition: Fiat anatomical line which subdivides an anatomical surface across one or more anatomical landmarks.
