Detects human Pro-BDNF in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Pro-BDNF is observed and no cross-reactivity with recombinant human beta -NGF, NT-4, Pro-NT-3 or Pro-NT-4 is observed. In Western blots, 100% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Pro-BDNF is observed and no cross-reactivity with recombinant human mature BDNF or recombinant human NT-3 is observed.

Detection of Human Pro‑BDNF by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human brain (cerebellum) tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Pro‑BDNF Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB31751) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Pro‑BDNF at approximately 40 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

BDNF is a member of the NGF family of neurotrophic factors that are required for the differentiation and survival of neuronal subpopulations in the central and peripheral nervous systems. BDNF functions through interactions with the TrkB receptor tyrosine kinase and the low affinity neurotrophin receptor, p75 (NTR). The human BDNF cDNA encodes 247 amino acids (aa). Cleavage of an 18 aa signal sequence produces an approximately 35 kDa Pro-BDNF form. The N-terminal pro region of BDNF is removed by tPA and furin to release biologically active, 14 kDa BDNF. The propeptides of human and mouse BDNF share 93% aa sequence identity.
