Summaries for NGF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NGF Gene

  • This gene is a member of the NGF-beta family and encodes a secreted protein which homodimerizes and is incorporated into a larger complex. This protein has nerve growth stimulating activity and the complex is involved in the regulation of growth and the differentiation of sympathetic and certain sensory neurons. Mutations in this gene have been associated with hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy, type 5 (HSAN5), and dysregulation of this gene's expression is associated with allergic rhinitis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NGF Gene

NGF (Nerve Growth Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NGF include neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, type v and autonomic neuropathy. Among its related pathways are Apoptosis Modulation and Signaling and Development Endothelin-1/EDNRA signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and receptor signaling protein activity. An important paralog of this gene is BDNF.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NGF Gene

  • Nerve growth factor is important for the development and maintenance of the sympathetic and sensory nervous systems. Extracellular ligand for the NTRK1 and NGFR receptors, activates cellular signaling cascades through those receptor tyrosine kinase to regulate neuronal proliferation, differentiation and survival. Inhibits metalloproteinase dependent proteolysis of platelet glycoprotein VI (PubMed:20164177).

Tocris Summary for NGF Gene

  • Trk (neurotrophin) receptors are single transmembrane catalytic receptors with intracellular tyrosine kinase activity. Trk receptors are coupled to the Ras, Cdc42/Rac/RhoG, MAPK, PI3K and PLCgamma signaling pathways. Four members of the Trk family have been identified.
