Schulze J, Staecker H, Wedekind D, Lenarz T, Warnecke A (2022) Expression pattern of brain-derived neurotrophic factor and its associated receptors: Implications for exogenous neurotrophin application. Hear Res 413:108098. doi: 10.1016/j.heares.2020.108098
Objective: To investigate the mechanisms of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the inner ear, by analyzing the expression of mature BDNF (mBDNF), its proform proBDNF and their respective receptors the low affinity p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR) and the neurotrophic receptor tyrosine kinase 2 (NTRK2).
Summary: Treatment with proBDNF is not toxic for spiral ganglion neuron (SGN) survival but simultaneously not protective. However, combined treatment of mBDNF and proBDNF maintained and perhaps slightly increased the protective effect of mBDNF.
