Presence of brain-derived neurotrophic factor in brain and human and rat but not mouse serum detected by a sensitive and specific immunoassay.


Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is one of several endogenous proteins that play key roles in neuronal development and homeostasis. We describe here the characterization and use of a sensitive and specific enzyme-linked immunoassay (EIA) for BDNF protein. Recombinant BDNF was detected at concentrations as low as 10 pg/ml, whereas the EIA did not… (More)
