Neurotrophic factors are peptides or protein molecules that support cell survival and cell death in neural and nonneural tissues. In this way, these molecules affect the development, maintenance, and plasticity of the nervous system during the development and in the adulthood (Sampaio et al. 2017).
Summary of neurotrophic factors’ families and their main components, receptors, and...
