Biological Activity

BDNF (human) is a member of the neurotrophin growth factor family that binds and activates TrkB and p75 neurotrophin receptors. BDNF enhances the survival, growth and differentiation of neurons. BDNF expression is altered in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. In an animal model of Huntington's disease, BDNF administration or overexpression rescues the disease phenotype.
