BDNF and NT4 regulate cell death, axonal growth and axonal guidance by altering gene expression. Because many of these functions of the two neurotrophins differ in taste development, each likely alters gene expression in a unique way. To determine if removal of BDNF and NT4 alters gene expression in different ways, I will compare microarray gene expression profiles in the geniculate ganglion among BDNF knockout, Nt4 knockout, and wild type mice during development.
