Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B
Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor, or BDNF, is a nerve growth factor that supports neuron growth and survival. BDNF shares identical domains with two other neurotrophic factors known as, b-NGF and NT-3 (neurotrophin-3). BDNF binds with low affinity to a receptor known as LNGFR, which also binds NGF and NT-3, but mediates survival function by signaling through a high affinity receptor known as gp145/TrkB. Human BDNF is a homodimer containing two 119 amino acid chains, having a total molecular mass of 27kD (without gylcosylation).
