A) I can detect more than one band in my samples
BDNF is a neurotrophin that is a subject of maturation by proteolytic cleavage. The precursor protein (pre-proBDNF) is first cleaved to proBDNF (~34 kDa) by removing a signal peptide, and then to a mature form of BDNF (14 kDa). Additionally, (pre-)proBDNF can form dimers that run between 50 and 60 kDa, and a minor truncated form of proBDNF running at 28 kDa has also been reported (PMID: 11152678).
