littoralis on adult neurogenesis in the DG of the adult mouse hippocampus using 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine (BrdU, an indicator for cell proliferation) labeling and immunohistochemistry for doublecortin (DCX, an immature neuronal marker), which has been commonly used to investigate the proliferation of neuroblast.[18],[19] In addition, we examined expressional changes of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and its major receptor tropomyosin-related kinase B (TrkB), which are well known to be involved in the neurogenic process.[20],[21]
