NT-3 is found in neurons of the central nervous system. NT-3 is expressed also in muscles and its expression is down-regulated in denervated muscles. Many human gliomas express and secrete NT-3 into the conditioned medium. Some protein domains of NT-3 are identical with those of NGF and BDNF. NT-3 selectively supports the survival of neuronal cell populations. NT-3 has been shown recently to prevent death of cultured embryonic rat spinal motor neurons at picomolar concentrations. NT-3 has been shown to enhance sprouting of corticospinal tract during development and after adult spinal cord lesion. The activities of NT-3 and BDNF are additive in some systems. The biological activities of NT-3 are mediated by a receptor belonging to the trk family of receptors with intrinsic tyrosine-specific protein kinase activity. NT-3 only binds weakly to the trk receptor which is a high-affinity receptor for NGF.
The ED(50) was determined by the dose-dependent induction of choline acetyl transferase activity in rat basal forebrain primary septal cell cultures was found to be in the range of 10-50 ng/mL.

Recombinant Human Neurotrophin-3 (NTF3)
Recombinant NT-3 was lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered PBS solution pH 7.5.
A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.

Shipping Condition :
The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year from date of receipt at -70°C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8°C for one month, or at -20°C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
