First, DNA is subjected to spontaneous hydrolytic processes, including depurination, depyrimidination, deamination and cleavage of phosphodiester bonds. Of these, depurination is the most frequent process. From the rate of depurination of DNA in aqueous solution under physiological conditions in vitro, it has been estimated that the DNA in each cell undergoes 10,000 depurinations per day (Lindahl and Nyberg 1972). The hydrolytic damage to DNA is the deamination of DNA bases, in particular at cytosine yields uracil, which is recognized by a specific repair enzyme uracil DNA-glycosylase (UDG) and uracil in DNA is known to be removed with very high efficiency.

Unexpectedly, proBDNF binds preferentially to the pan-neurotrophin receptor p75NTR to activate apoptosis-related signaling pathways in the hippocampus and thereby facilitate LTD. Learning, training and memory formation change the amount of BDNF mRNA and protein in the hippocampus. For example, the induction of LTP in the rat hippocampus rapidly and selectively increases the level of BDNF mRNA (Patterson et al. 1992; Castren et al. 1993), and learning increases hippocampal BDNF, proBDNF, and TrkB protein content (Silhol et al.
