A Tale of Two Genes: Reelin and BDNF
TLDR
Epileptic seizures increase BDNF levels while decreasing Reelin levels, and BDNF and Reelin seem to have opposite roles in mediating the effects of the seizures, suggesting that BDNF-induced downregulation of Reelin is involved.
BDNF-modulated spatial organization of Cajal-Retzius and GABAergic neurons in the marginal zone plays a role in the development of cortical organization.
TLDR
It is proposed that in addition to modulating reelin expression, BDNF regulates the patched distribution of CR and GABAergic neurons in the MZ, and that this spatial distribution is involved in the formation of anatomical and/or functional columns and convoluted structures.
Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor Participates in Determination of Neuronal Laminar Fate in the Developing Mouse Cerebral Cortex
TLDR
BDNF can be counted as one of the key extrinsic factors that regulate the laminar fate of cortical neurons and is suggested to participate in the processes forming the neuronal laminas in the developing cerebral cortex.
Increase in reelin-positive cells in the marginal zone of Pax6 mutant mouse cortex.
TLDR
It is described that reelin-positive cells are strongly increased in the developing cortex of the Pax6 mutant mice, and tangential migration of diverse cell types from the ventral telencephalon into the cortex is enhanced in the Pax 6 mutant mice.
Impaired reelin processing and secretion by Cajal–Retzius cells contributes to granule cell dispersion in a mouse model of temporal lobe epilepsy
TLDR
GCD results from abnormal reelin processing in Cajal–Retzius cells under the control of BDNF, suggesting that production of truncated reelin in KA‐treated hippocampus is activity‐dependent and regulated by BDNF.
Thyroid Hormone Regulates reelin and dab1Expression During Brain Development
TLDR
The data suggest that the effects of thyroid hormone on neuronal migration may be in part mediated through the control of reelin anddab1 expression during brain ontogenesis.
BDNF/MAPK/ERK-induced BMP7 expression in the developing cerebral cortex induces premature radial glia differentiation and impairs neuronal migration.
TLDR
A mechanism for BDNF regulation of BMP7 is proposed in which local activity-driven BDNF-induced B MP7 expression at the end of neurogenesis instructs competent precursors to generate astrocytes to ensure synchronic neuronal and glial maturation at the beginning of cortical activity.
Suppression of Insult-Induced Neurogenesis in Adult Rat Brain by Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor
TLDR
It is shown that intrahippocampal transduction of recombinant adeno-associated virus carrying the BDNF gene giving rise to levels of BDNF protein sufficient to induce a functional response inhibits the formation of new dentate granule cells triggered by global forebrain ischemia in rats.
NKCC1-Mediated GABAergic Signaling Promotes Postnatal Cell Death in Neocortical Cajal-Retzius Cells.
TLDR
A novel developmental death pathway mediated by NKCC1, via GABAA receptor-mediated membrane depolarization and p75NTR receptor signaling pathway is discovered in Cajal-Retzius neurons and may be critically involved in neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.

Neurotrophins and Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor Induce the Differentiation of Calbindin-Containing Neurons in the Cerebral Cortex
TLDR
The roles of BDNF, NT-3, and bFGF in the expression of calbindin in developing neocortical neurons are characterized and are in agreement with earlier in vivo studies.
Reelin mRNA Expression During Mouse Brain Development
TLDR
Using in situ hybridization, expression of the mRNA for reelin, the gene most probably responsible for the reeler trait, was studied during mouse brain development, suggesting that the action of reelin is indirect, possibly mediated by the extracellular matrix.
Cells that Express Brain‐Derived Neurotrophic Factor mRNA in the Developing Postnatal Rat Brain
TLDR
Both transient and persistent expression of BDNF mRNA in various regions of the developing rat brain are shown and suggest that there is a caudal to rostral gradient ofBDNF expression during postnatal brain development, which may be correlated to neuronal maturation.
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor promotes the differentiation of various hippocampal nonpyramidal neurons, including Cajal-Retzius cells, in organotypic slice cultures
TLDR
The present results indicate that BDNF exerts an effect on the morphology of stratum oriens nonpyramidal cells and their calcium-binding protein levels and is not required for the survival of Cajal-Retzius cells but is not necessary for their survival.
Glutamate-like immunoreactivity and fate of Cajal-Retzius cells in the murine cortex as identified with calretinin antibody.
TLDR
It is proposed that Cajal-Retzius cells releasing glutamate may direct migrating neuroblasts toward the marginal lamina, therefore creating the "inside-out" sequence of cortical development.
