1. Measured by its ability to bind biotinylated human TrkB-His (Cat:10047-H08H) in functional ELISA.
2. Measured by its ability to bind Human TrkB-Fch (Cat:10047-H03H) in functional ELISA.
3. Measured by its ability to bind biotinylated mouse TrkB-His (Cat:50132-M08H) in functional ELISA.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the mouse BDNF (P21237) (Met1-Arg249) was expressed and its mature form was purified. The mature form of human, mouse, rat, cynomolgus and canine BDNF sequences are identical.
Expressed Host
CHO Stable Cells
Predicted N Terminal
His 131
Molecule Mass
The recombinant mature form of mouse BDNF consists of 119 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 13.5 KDa.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS
Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.

BDNF Background Information

BDNF is a member of the nerve growth factor family. It is highly expressed in hippocampus, amygdala, cerebral cortex and cerebellum. It also can be detected in heart, lung, skeletal muscle, testis, prostate and placenta. BDNF is induced by cortical neurons, and is necessary for survival of striatal neurons in the brain. During development, BDNF promotes the survival and differentiation of selected neuronal populations of the peripheral and central nervous systems. It participates in axonal growth, pathfinding and in the modulation of dendritic growth and morphology. It functions as the 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.
