The importance of neuronal growth factors in the ovary.
New Haven, United States. In Mol Hum Reprod, Jan 2016
The neurotrophin family consists of nerve growth factor (NGF), neurotrophin 3 (NT3) and neurotrophin 4/5 (NT4/5), in addition to brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and the neuronal growth factors, glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and vasointestinal peptide (VIP).
Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor: Three Ligands, Many Actions.
New York City, United States. In Trans Am Clin Climatol Assoc, 2014
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a member of a family of neurotrophins which include nerve growth factor, neurotrophin 3, and neurotrophin 4. Studies over the last three decades have identified mature BDNF as a key regulator of neuronal differentiation, structure, and function; actions mediated by the TrkB receptor.
Neurotrophin regulation of neural circuit development and function.
Berkeley, United States. In Nat Rev Neurosci, 2013
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)--a member of a small family of secreted proteins that includes nerve growth factor, neurotrophin 3 and neurotrophin 4--has emerged as a key regulator of neural circuit development and function.
