Neurotrophin trafficking by anterograde transport.


The ever-unfolding biology of NGF is consistent with a target-derived retrograde mode of action in peripheral and central neurons. However, another member of the neurotrophin family, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), is present within nerve terminals in certain regions of the brain and PNS that do not contain the corresponding mRNA.
