BDNF protein levels distribution in 139 AFs (84 Val66Val individuals and 55 Met66 carriers). BDNF protein levels, evaluated by ELISA method, are significantly reduced in Met carriers versus non carriers The amount of BDNF expressed in pg/ml was 10.02 ± 9.62 for Met allele carriers and 15.88 ± 12.71 for non carriers (Mann-Whithney test: p = 0.002). In the group of Met allele carriers, the Met66Met are evidenced in black. Error Bars indicates the mean of values ± standard deviation.
