Measurement of BDNF protein levels in 14-days- in vitro mouse cortical neurons following transduction with short-hairpin (sh)RNA constructs for luciferase (non-mammalian control), Fragile X mental retardation ( Fmr1 ), Methyl-CpG binding protein ( Mecp2 ) or non-transduced neurons (blank). Values for mRNA and protein as % of luciferase control shRNA are shown in the table on the right (n = 12 per group).
