Gene: Bdnf (brain derived neurotrophic factor) Mus musculus
Symbol: Bdnf
Name: brain derived neurotrophic factor
Description: Predicted to have growth factor activity; nerve growth factor receptor binding activity; and neurotrophin TRKB receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including generation of neurons; modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; and regulation of programmed cell death. Localizes to several cellular components, including dendrite; perinuclear region of cytoplasm; and secretory granule. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including cognitive disorder (multiple); congenital central hypoventilation syndrome; neurodegenerative disease (multiple); obstructive sleep apnea; and status epilepticus. Orthologous to human BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
