To explore the mechanism of diabetic erectile dysfunction, we studied the distribution of neurotrophins in the penises of diabetic rats, including nerve growth factor (NGF), brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin-3 (NT-3), and neurotrophin-4 (NT-4). Male Sprague-Dawley rats were injected with 65 mg/kg streptozotocin to induce diabetes… CONTINUE READING
