Production and characterization of recombinant mouse brain-derived neurotrophic factor and rat neurotrophin-3 expressed in insect cells.


Bioactive brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and neurotrophin-3 were produced using the baculovirus expression system and purified to homogeneity using ion-exchange and reversed-phase chromatography. Yields of purified neurotrophin-3 (300-500 micrograms/L) were similar to levels reported for baculovirus-expressed nerve growth factor (NGF), whereas… (More)
