This pathway has evolved to handle the numerous minor alterations—including spontaneous modification, oxidation, alkylation, deamination and loss of bases—that can occur in the structure of DNA as a result of cellular metabolic activity. This mode of repair is of particular importance in post-mitotic tissues such as those of the brain, where simple base modifications are more likely to occur than is major damage to DNA. The core BER pathway requires the function of only four enzymes in the basic reaction steps to remove a damaged DNA base and replace it with the correct base.

4 Activity-Dependent Processing and Local Synthesis of BDNF As mentioned previously, BDNF is initially synthesized as a precursor protein (proBDNF) that is post-translationally cleaved by intracellular proteases to yield the mature BDNF protein (Seidah et al. 1996; Matsumoto et al. 2008). The proBDNF protein can also be cleaved in the extracellular space (Pang et al. 2004). This processing mechanism plays a key role in determining the cellular functions of the neurotrophin (Barker 2009; Greenberg et al.

1997) and by epileptogenic stimulation in vivo (Simonato et al. 2002; Tongiorgi et al. 2004; Chiaruttini et al. 2008). These findings suggest that the dendritic movement of BDNF mRNA and the local translation of BDNF may contribute significantly to activity-dependent synaptic plasticity. 5 BDNF and Synaptic Plasticity Synaptic plasticity in the central nervous system is thought to be critical for the processing and encoding of information by neuronal circuits, which is central to learning and memory.
