      • Recombinant human Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) protein
    Activity NT-3 is involved in many biological outcomes including strengthening synaptic connections to motoneurons1 and serving as an anti-inflammatory factor to suppress microglial activation2 among many other cellular functions. NT-3 biological effects are mediated by two receptors: TrkC, which is specific for NT-3 and p75NTR, which binds all neurotrophins3.
    Shipping and storage Shipped at room temperature. Product as supplied can be stored intact at room temperature for several weeks. For longer periods, it should be stored at -20°C.
    Solubility Sterile water at a concentration of at least 1 μg/0.1 ml. BSA (0.1 mg/ml) should be added for more diluted solutions. Centrifuge all product preparations before use (10000 x g 5 min). Repeated freezing/thawing might result in loss of activity.
    Storage of solutions Up to one week at 4°C or four-six weeks at -70°C.

        Three days post transfection, cells were serum deprived for 3 hours and then challenged with varying concentrations of Recombinant human Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) protein (#N-260) for 8 minutes. Cell extracts were prepared, resolved by SDS-PAGE and probed with anti-phospho-ERK1/2.
    References - Scientific background
      • The neurotrophins ("neuro" means nerve and "trophe" means nutrient) are a family of soluble, basic growth factors which regulate neuronal development, maintenance, survival and death in the CNS and PNS.1

        Of all the neurotrophins, Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) shows the highest expression levels during the perinatal development, with most prominent expression levels in the hippocampus, the neocortex and the cerebellum.2 Release of endogenous NT-3 was observed from cultures of embryonic hippocampus following high K+ induced depolarization or stimulation with activity dependent neurotrophic factor (ADNF).3

        The structural hallmark of all the neurotrophins is the characteristic arrangement of the disulfide bridges known as the cysteine knot, which has been found in other growth factors such as PDGF.4 The rat and human forms of NT-3 are 96% homologous.

        NT-3 has been shown to strengthen synaptic connections to motoneurons in the neonatal rat,5 to serve as an anti-inflammatory factor to suppress microglial activation,6 to play a critical role in regulating T helper 1/T helper 2 cell balance7 and to modify potassium currents in isolated inner hair cells from guinea pig cochlea.8

        The biological effects of NT-3 are mediated by two receptors: TrkC, which is specific for NT-3 and p75NTR, which binds all the neurotrophins.9
