  • Target

    • 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
      modifications
      The propeptide is N-glycosylated and glycosulfated.
      Converted into mature BDNF by plasmin (PLG).
    • Cellular localizationSecreted.

    • ab72439 staining BDNF in Mouse ovarian tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was blocked with 10% serum in 0.1% Triton X-100; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer (pH 6.0). Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100) overnight at 4°C. A HRP-conjugated Horse anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/2000) was used as the secondary antibody.
