The adult subventricular zone (SVZ) contains progenitors cells, which continually give rise to new neurons that migrate along the rostral migratory stream (RMS) to the olfactory bulbs (OB). Prokineticin receptor 2 (ProKR2) is a G-protein-coupled receptor that plays an essential role in this migration process. However, the identity of the prokr2-expressing(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is critical for mammalian development and plasticity of neuronal circuitries affecting memory, mood, anxiety, pain sensitivity, and energy homeostasis. Here we report a novel unexpected role of BDNF in regulating the cardiac contraction force independent of the nervous system innervation. This function is mediated by(More)
