Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) are neurotrophic factors involved in the neurotrophin family. However, while their biological activities on cultured neurons and their distribution have been reported, their functions in the central nervous system including the spinal cord are still unknown. We have recently developed antibodies to BDNF and to NT-3 synthetic peptides with different amino acid sequences as tools to visualize these molecules in in vivo tissue… CONTINUE READING
