Brain Res. Dev. Brain Res. 119, 217-224.. Developmental expression of urinary bladder neurotrophic factor mRNA and protein in the neonatal rat. 2000

Vizzard, M.A., Wu, K.H., Jewett, I.T.

Notes: The amounts of neurotrophins NGF, NT-3 and NT-4 were examined in the bladders of Wistar rats at various times after birth up to adulthood. NGF ranged from 5ng per bladder (day 5) to10ng per bladder (day 15). NT-3 ranged from less than 1ng per bladder at postnatal day 30 to as high as about 18ng per bladder in adulthood. NT-4 ranged from about 1ng per bladder on day 30 to more than 40ng per bladder in adulthood. NGF, NT-3,  and BDNF protein levels were determined with the NGF Emax® ImmunoAssay System, NT-3 Emax® ImmunoAssay System, and BDNF levels Emax® ImmunoAssay System, respectively. Extraction procedures are detailed. (0228)

Neurosci. Lett. 280, 220-222.. Differential neurotrophin levels in cerebrospinal fluid and their changes during development in newborn rat. 2000

Xia, Y.X., Ikeda, T., Xia, X.Y., Ikenoue, T.

Notes: The levels of BDNF, NT-3 and NGF were examined in the cerebrospinal fluid of newborn rats (80 per sample) from postnatal day 1-21. NGF levels were consistently higher than the other neurotrophins ranging from 136pg/ml (day 21) to 607pg/ml (day 17) depending upon the day tested. NT-3 was the next most abundant ranging from approximately 40pg/ml (day 19) to 144pg/ml (day 7). BDNF was the least abundant ranging from 19.2pg/ml (day 5) to as high as 65pg/ml (day 13). NGF was determined with the NGF Emax® ImmunoAssay System (NGF ELISA), NT-3 levels were determined with the NT-3 Emax® ImmunoAssay System (NT-3 ELISA), and BDNF levels were determined with the BDNF Emax® ImmunoAssay System (BDNF ELISA).

J. Immunol. 162, 6303-6306. Cutting Edge: Clonally restricted production of the neurotrophins brain-derived neurotrophic factor and neurotrophin-3 mRNA by human immune cells and Th1/Th2-polarized expression of their receptors. 1999

Besser, M. and Wank, R.

Notes: Strong expression of BDNF was detected in immune cells. The BDNF Emax® ImmunoAssay System was used to determine whether sufficient BDNF was produced for detection in cell culture medium. Media from untreated and irradiated cells (500,000 cells in 2ml of media) was assayed for BDNF content at 1 and 3 days. EBV-transformed lymphoblastoid B cell lines (B-LCL), MM1 monocytes and cloned T cells produced BDNF ranging from below detection to as high as 100pg/ml. Irradiated cells produced more BDNF than non-irradiated cells. (1441)

J. Neurosci. 19, 10-20. Neuroprotection and neuronal differentiation studies using substantia nigra dopaminergic cells derived from transgenic mouse embryos 1999

Son, J.H., Chun, H.S., Joh, T.H., Cho, S., Conti, B., Lee, J.W.

Notes: The authors developed a stable substantia nigra dopaminergic neuronal cell line via transgenic mice. The BDNF Emax® ImmunoAssay System was used to detected the secretion of neuroprotective BDNF into conditioned media following treatments with MPP+, H2O2, SNP, glutamate and TNFalpha. MPP+, H2O2 and the NO producer SNP caused a decrease in BDNF secretion and Glutamate and TNF alpha caused significant increases in secretion. (0353)

J. Biol. Chem. 273, 29394-29399. Activity-dependent release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor underlies the neuroprotective effect of N-methyl-D-aspartate. 1998

Marini, A.M., Rabin, S.J., Lipsky, R.H., Mocchetti, I.

Notes: The BDNF Emax® ImmunoAssay System was used to determine the levels of BDNF in the conditioned media of primary rat cerebellar neurons. The conditioned media (4ml) was concentrated (200µl) using a Centricon-10 Microconcentrator prior to assay. Cells treated with with N-methyl-D-aspartate released more BDNF than control cells at all time points. After 3 hours of treatment, the granule cells alone released 84.0 ± 9.3pg/ml and the treated cells released 151.3 ± 31. The BDNF released into the media was detectable by Western blotting with an Anti-Human BDNF pAb (antibody attributed to Promega but not mentioned in the Materials and Methods). The cultured granule cells were also assayed for TrkB phosphorylation by incubating with Recombinant Human BDNF. (0733)

Exp. Neurol. 150, 98-106. Developmental changes in growth factors released by the embryonic inner ear 1998

Bianchi, L.M., Dolnick, R., Medd, A., Cohan, C.S.

Notes: Conditioned media from rat embryonic inner ear cultures was concentrated and analyzed by Western blotting with the Anti-Human BDNF pAb, Anti-Human NT-3 pAb and the Anti-Rat CNTF pAb. The conditioned media and various amounts of the growth factors were blotted together and developed. The Anti-BDNF pAb, Anti-NT-3 pAb and Anti-CNTF pAb were blotted with 50ng and 10ng of the respective factor along with 50ng of each of the other two factors. The Western analysis detected immunoreactivity only for NT-3 in the conditioned media. Some cross reactivity of the Anti-BDNF pAb for NT-3 and the Anti-NT-3 pAb are reported but clearly each has a preference for the respective factor. Cross reactivity to some level can be expected since both are members of the NGF family of growth factors and the proteins were denatured. As expected, no cross-reactivity with CNTF was observed since it is a different class of growth factor more closely related to cytokines. Inner ear and brain homogenates were analyzed with the BDNF Emax® ImmunoAssay System and the NT-3 Emax® ImmunoAssay System. Inner ear homogenates contained 59pg/ml of BDNF and 320pg/ml NT-3. Brain homogenates produced 440pg/ml BDNF and 436pg/ml NT-3. The BDNF Emax®  ImmunoAssay did not recognized NT-3 at levels as high as 600ng/ml and the NT-3 Emax®  ImmunoAssay did not recognize BDNF at levels as high as 1ng/ml. (0026)
