Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) belongs to a family of growth factors called neurotrophins whose actions are centered in the nervous system. NT-3 is structurally related to other neurotrophins like brain-derived neurotrophic factor. The expression of NT-3 starts with the onset of neurogenesis and continues throughout life. A wealth of information links NT-3 to the growth, differentiation, and survival of hippocampal cells as well as sympathetic and sensory neurons. These studies have described the distribution of NT-3 and its receptors throughout development and in the mature nervous system. Prior works has begun to cell-type specific impact of NT-3 as well as identify the signaling pathways involved. However, much less is known about how NT-3 regulates synaptic transmission. This chapter focuses role of NT-3 in the modulation of synaptic transmission. © 2020 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
