Neurotrophic factor expression in hPDLSCs. a RT-PCR analysis of various neurotrophic factor transcripts in hPDLSCs. GAPDH used as the PCR control. M marker (Takara 100 bp DNA Ladder). b ELISA NGF, VEGF, and BDNF protein levels in both supernatants and cell lysates of hPDLSCs. n = 4 independent experiments. BDNF brain-derived neurotrophic factor, bFGF bioactive basic fibroblast growth factor, CNTF ciliary neurotrophic factor, GDNF glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, IGF-1 insulin-like growth factor 1, NGF nerve growth factor, NT-3 neurotrophin-3, VEGF vascular endothelial growth factor
