Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/300 - 1/2000. Predicted molecular weight: 28 kDa. This antibody has been tested in Western blot against the recombinant peptide used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.
IHC-P 1/300 - 1/2000. Antigen retrieval is recommended.
IHC-FoFr 1/200 - 1/3000. We recommend incubating overnight with shaking. Zamboni fixative is also suitable with this antibody.


  • FunctionDuring development, promotes the survival and differentiation of selected neuronal populations of the peripheral and central nervous systems. Participates in axonal growth, pathfinding and in the modulation of dendritic growth and morphology. Major regulator of synaptic transmission and plasticity at adult synapses in many regions of the CNS. The versatility of BDNF is emphasized by its contribution to a range of adaptive neuronal responses including long-term potentiation (LTP), long-term depression (LTD), certain forms of short-term synaptic plasticity, as well as homeostatic regulation of intrinsic neuronal excitability.
  • Tissue specificityBrain. Highly expressed in hippocampus, amygdala, cerebral cortex and cerebellum. Also expressed in heart, lung, skeletal muscle, testis, prostate and placenta.
  • Involvement in diseaseCongenital central hypoventilation syndrome
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NGF-beta family.
  • Post-translational
    The propeptide is N-glycosylated and glycosulfated.
    Converted into mature BDNF by plasmin (PLG).
