B3795 Brain-derived neurotrophic factor human BDNF, recombinant, expressed in E. coli, lyophilized powder, suitable for cell culture Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a 13.6 kDa (or 27.2 kDa dimer) member of the neurotrophin family. BDNF has identical amino acid sequence in human, mouse, and pig with full cross-reactivities. BDNF is important in development and maintenance of neuronal populations within the central nervous system or cells directly associated with it. BDNF has been shown to enhance the survival and differentiation of several classes of neurons in vitro, including neural crest and placode-derived sensory neurons, dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, basal forebrain cholinergic neurons, hippocampal neurons, and retinal ganglial cells.
B5050 Monoclonal Anti-Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor antibody produced in mouse clone 35928.11, purified immunoglobulin, lyophilized powder Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) belongs to a family of secreted proteins called neurotrophins that includes, nerve growth factor (NGF), neurotrophin-3 (NT3) and NT4/5. BDNF is expressed in the developing and the mature brain. The downstream pathways promoted by BDNF include PI3K, MAPK and JAK/STAT. The most important role of BDNF is the regulation of synaptic transmission and plasticity, protein synthesis and phosphorylation of local proteins.
C3835 Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor from rat recombinant, expressed in E. coli, lyophilized powder, suitable for cell culture, ≥98% (SDS-PAGE), carrier free Ciliary neurotrophic factor was first identified as a survival factor for neurons from the ciliary ganglion of chicken embryos. Most of its known actions are restricted to cells of the nervous system, including motor neurons, sympathetic ganglion neurons, sensory neurons, hippocampal neurons, and medial septal neurons. CNTF also prevents degeneration of motor axons after axotomy and promotes astrocyte differentiation and oligodendrocyte survival and maturation. Outside the nervous system, CNTF maintains embryonic stem cells in an undifferentiated, pluripotent state. CNTF is structurally related to leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-11 (IL-11) and oncostatin M (OSM). CNTF exerts its actions through the activation of the high-affinity CTNF receptor complex, which contains the ligand-binding α-subunit (CNTF Rα) and two signal transducing β-subunits (LIF Rβ and gp130). CNTF is localized in the cell nucleus subsequent to receptor binding. Human and rat ciliary neurotrophic factor share ~83% sequence homology and show cross-reactivity in bioactivity.

CNTF exerts its actions through the activation of the high-affinity CTNF receptor complex, which contains the ligand-binding α-subunit (CNTF Rα) and two signal transducing β-subunits (LIF Rβ and gp130). The LIF Rβ subunit is also shared by receptors for LIF and OSM. The gp130 subunit is also shared by receptors for LIF, OSM, IL-6, and IL-11. CNTF is localized in the cell nucleus subsequent to receptor binding. Human and rat CNTF share ~83% sequence homology and show cross-reactivity in bioactivity.
