    BDNF-TrkB promotes the cell survival of CRC cell lines. (A) Role of endogenous BDNF and its receptor TrkB on CRC cell proliferation: effects of exogenous BDNF and suppressing endogenous TrkB receptor on cell proliferation. The four cell lines were cultured for 24 h in FCS-free medium (FCS 10%, −) in the presence of exogenous BDNF (+), K252a (+) alone or in combination. Cell proliferation was determined by flow cytometry analysis using EdU Alexa Fluor 488. The data are presented as histograms of proliferating cells in relative units ± SEM of five independent experiments. *, p

    Sequestering BDNF prevents TrkB signaling. TrkB-Fc was infused in the hippocampi of one hemisphere (ipsilateral, i) of control and SE animals. The dorsal hippocampus from non-infused side (c) and infused side (i) were homogenized separately and analyzed by western blot to determine BDNF (A) , proBDNF (C) , TrkB (D) and pTrkB (E) . Panels (B,F,G) show the quantifications for BDNF (B) , TrkB (F) and pTrkB (G) . Black bars represent non-infused hippocampus and gray bars TrkB-Fc infused sides. Results are expressed as mean ± SEM of four animals per treatment. Asterisks indicate p

    BDNF prevents proBDNF-induced neuronal death. (A) Representative micrographs of hippocampal neurons stained with NeuN, βIII-tubulin and DAPI. The following conditions were studied: untreated control, cells treated with 100 ng/ml BDNF, with 100 ng/ml proBDNF, or with BDNF + proBDNF. Scale bar = 50 μm. (B) Quantification of NeuN-positive cells. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM ( n = 3 independent experiments with three pseudo-replicates per experiment). Asterisk indicates p = 0.024 compared to control by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s post hoc analysis.
