BDNF–TrkB interaction causes catecholamine release in adrenal medulla

Stress induces expression of tyrosine receptor kinase B (TrkB) in the adrenal medulla (Adm), but the role of TrkB expression is poorly understood. Here, we showed that activation of TrkB induces catecholamine release and expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the Adm. During stress, BDNF–TrkB interaction may thus play a role in a positive feedback loop.
