BDNF stimulates TrkB receptors of lamina I secondary sensory neurons in dorsal horn to cause down-regulation of the potassium-chloride transporter KCC2, resulting in an increase in intracellular [[Cl.sup.-]] and a depolarizing shift in the anion reversal potential ([E.sub.anion]).
Pb also inhibits the vesicular release of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) and subsequent TrkB (tropomyosinrelated kinase B) activation in the presynaptic neuron (Neal et al.
BDNF is the most widely distributed neurotrophin in the CNS and plays a central role in the regulation of neuronal survival mainly by activating through the neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor B (TrkB).
