BDNF may represent a beneficial therapeutically agent against a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders, but bad pharmacokinetics complicate its clinical use. This article focuses on the design and BDNF-like biological properties of low-molecular weight dimeric dipeptide mimetics of BDNF free of these disadvantages.

Keywords:BDNF; ГСБ-106; Dipeptide; Low-molecular weight mimetic; Neuroprotection; Antidepressant-like activity

Abbreviations: TrkB: Tropomyosine-related Kinase B; BDNF: Brain-Derived Nurotrophic Factor; PI3K/AKT: Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Protein Kinase B; MAPK/ERK: Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase/Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase; MCAO: Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion
