trkB messenger RNA expression in normal human brain and in the substantia nigra of parkinsonian patients: an in situ hybridization study.


trkB is a high-affinity receptor for brain-derived neurotrophic factor, a neurotrophin acting on numerous cells, including dopaminergic neurons. Yet, little is known of its expression in the human brain. We report an in situ hybridization analysis of trkB messenger RNA, encoding the catalytic form of the receptor, in the human brain post mortem. Its… (More)
