Human NT-4 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human NT-4 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human NT-4 in cell culture supernates and serum.
Neurotrophin-4(NT-4), also known as neurotrophin-5(NT-5), is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NTF4 gene. Human NT-4 as well as a human NT-4 pseudogene colocalize to chromosome 19 band q13.3. NT-4 is a member of a family of neurotrophic factors, the neurotrophins, that control survival and differentiation of vertebrate neurons(2-4). NT-4 is a neurotrophic factor that signals predominantly through the TrkB receptor tyrosine kinase. NT4 plays a physiological role essential for hippocampus- and amygdala-dependent long-term memory and hippocampal long-lasting LTP and that NT4 may be useful in the therapy of acquired disorders of learning and memory.
