Neurotrophins are important regulators in the embryogenesis, development and functioning of nervous systems. In addition to the efficacy of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in neurological disorders, we have found that BDNF demonstrates endocrinological functions and reduces food intake and blood glucose concentration in rodent obese diabetic(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by the extracellular deposition of amyloid-β (Aβ), neurofibrillary tangle formation, and a microglial-driven inflammatory response.
