Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in cardiometabolic physiology and diseases


, : Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in cardiometabolic physiology and diseases. Anadolu Kardiyoloji Dergisi 12(8): 684-688

Important advances in our understanding of the relationships between adipose tissue derived peptides, namely adipokines, and their effects on cardiovascular functions have been achieved in recent years. Growing knowledge of adipokine biology is revealing the complexity of these proteins. Adipose tissue releases some other proteins called neurotrophins that are mainly active in central and peripheral nervous system. However, secretion and activity of these hormones are not only limited to neuronal cells and tissues, but they also take part in adipose tissue development, energy metabolism, glucose utilization, insulin sensitivity, inflammation, lipoprotein synthesis, and atherosclerosis. In this review, we describe the most recent advances in the functions of brain derived nerve growth factor (BDNF), a major type of neurotrophins, focusing primarily on cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

Using an in vivo model with systemic administration of compounds, the hepatic uptake from blood and hepatic release into bile of [3H]methotrexate [( 3H]MTX) are shown to involve structurally distinct and specific mechanisms. The hepatic uptake of...
