  • Target

    • RelevanceBrain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)is a member of the nerve growth factor family. BDNF is necessary for survival of striatal neurons in the brain and also acts as a neuroprotectant of the major neuronal types (eg. hippocampal, cortical and basal forebrain cholinergic neurons). Expression of the BDNF gene is reduced in both Alzheimer's and Huntington disease patients. Furthermore BDNF may play a role in the regulation of stress response and in the biology of mood disorders. BDNF protein is synthesized as a precursor, proBDNF, which is cleaved to the mature 14-kDa form. It is known that BDNF exists as a mixture of proBDNF and mature BDNF (PMID: 1265414). Although the biological activity of proBDNF is unclear, there is evidence suggesting that reductions in proBDNF levels affects neuronal degeneration in selective brain regions (eg. in Alzheimer's disease).

    Thank you for contacting us.
    We have quite a few antibodies for BDNF. The antibodies ab108319, ab108383 ab109049 or ab72439 are against mature BDNF however ab78367 would detect the pro form.
    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please d...

    Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab78367. This antibody was originally described in Beattie MS et al., 2002, Neuron 36, 375-86. The immunogen used to create this antibody was from within the prodomain of the protein, thus, this antibody will no...
