Human BDNF

Part Number: 100-01

Human BDNF, Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, is a recombinant protein used as a nerve growth factor. In tissue or cell culture, it supports neuron growth and survival. BDNF is often used in combination with recombinant human GDNF for neuronal stem cell cultures.‚ Human BDNF, mouse BDNF, rat BDNF, and pig BDNF are cross-reactive.

Tested for biological activity in a C6 cell proliferation assay. Lyophilized protein, high purity, low endotoxin, high quality BDNF is manufactured in the USA by protein manufacturer‚ Shenandoah.





Alternate Names:  None               Accession Number: P23560

Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a nerve growth factor that binds two receptors, the low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor (LNGFR) and the tropomyosin receptor kinase B (TrkB), to support neuron growth and survival. BDNF expression in the hippocampus is essential for long-term memory storage and learning. Human, mouse, rat, and pig BDNF are cross-reactive.
