Anti-BDNF Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody
BDNF belongs to the neurotrophin family and regulates the survival and differentiation of neurons during development. The alterations in BDNF expression induced by various kinds of brain insult including stress, ischemia, seizure activity and hypoglycemia, may contribute to some pathologies such as depression, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease. Microglia release BDNF that may contribute to neuroinflammation and neuropathic pain. FUNCTION: Promotes the survival of neuronal populations that are all located either in the central nervous system or directly connected to it. Major regulator of synaptic transmission and plasticity at adult synapses in many regions of the CNS. The versatility of BDNF is emphasized by its contribution to a range of adaptive neuronal responses including long-term potentiation (LTP), long-term depression (LTD), certain forms of short-term synaptic plasticity, as well as homeostatic regulation of intrinsic neuronal excitability. SUBUNIT: Monomers and homodimers. Binds to NTRK2/TRKB. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted protein. POst translation modification: Converted into mature BDNF by plasmin (PLG). SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NGF-beta family.

Less than 0.1% cross reactivity with mouse NGF, recombinant human NT3 and NT4/5 has been recorded by dot blot analysis.

Application Information:
Western Blotting: This antibody detects multiple BDNF isoforms (14 kDa mature BDNF, 18 kDa isoform, 28 kDa BDNF dimer/truncated BDNF, 32 kDa proBDNF monomer) depending on sample application (human serum, cell lysate, tissue homogenate). Antibody also detects BDNF under non-reducing conditions (McLean NA, 2014).
ELISA: Detection only, 1:1000-1:5000 recommended.
Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
