Biochem/physiol Actions

Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) belongs to a family of secreted proteins called neurotrophins. Neurotrophins are synthesized as preproneurotrophin precursors and further processed to proneurotrophins and subsequently to neurotrophins. BDNF is expressed in the developing and the mature brain. The influence of BDNF is mediated by its binding to TrkB receptor and sometimes the receptor p75NTR. 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.
