Neurotrophins are a family of soluble polypeptide growth factors widely recognized for their roles in the mammalian nervous system. One such neurotrophin, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) was originally described in the nervous system but has now been shown to be expressed in a variety of nonneuronal tissues including endocrine tissues.

Neurotrophins are a family of soluble polypeptide growth factors widely recognized for their role in the mammalian nervous system. We first reported the unique presence of one neurotrophin, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), in the follicular fluid of the human ovarian follicle. The BDNF receptor, Trk B, was identified in mouse oocytes, and BDNF(More)
