The development and maintenance of the vertebrate nervous system depends upon neuronal survival proteins known as neurotrophic factors. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a member of the neurotrophin family of growth factors that includes NGF, NT-3, and NT-4 9also designated NT5). Human BDNF (mature protein 119aa; chromosome 11p13) is produced from a 247aa propeptide by the cleavage of signal (1-18aa) and the propeptide (19-128aa). The mature human and rat IDNF are identical. All neurotrophins have six conserved cysteine residues and share a 55% sequence identity at the amino acid level. BDNF has been shown to enhance the survival and differentiation of several classes of neurons in vitro, including neural crest and placode-derived sensory neurons, dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, basal forebrain cholinergic neurons, hippocampal neurons, and retinal ganglial cells. BDNF is expressed within peripheral ganglia and is not restricted to neuronal target fields, raising the possibility that BDNF has paracrine or even autocrine actions on neurons as well as non-neuronal cells. The TrKA receptor is the preferred receptor for NGF, but also binds NT-3 and Nt-4. The TrkB receptor binds equally well both BDNF and NT-4, and to a lesser extent NT-3. The TrkC receptor only binds NT-3.
