BDNF gene (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor)
Do you need the BDNF gene to express the BDNF protein for functional or characterization studies? Get the BDNF gene in an expression-ready vector for your molecular biology studies by ordering a BDNF ORF clone.
About the BDNF gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the nerve growth factor family. It is induced by cortical neurons, and is necessary for survival of striatal neurons in the brain. Expression of this gene is reduced in both Alzheimer's and Huntington disease patients. This gene may play a role in the regulation of stress response and in the biology of mood disorders. Multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]
