Summaries for NTF4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NTF4 Gene

  • This gene is a member of a family of neurotrophic factors, neurotrophins, that control survival and differentiation of mammalian neurons. The expression of this gene is ubiquitous and less influenced by environmental signals. While knock-outs of other neurotrophins including nerve growth factor, brain-derived neurotrophic factor, and neurotrophin 3 prove lethal during early postnatal development, NTF5-deficient mice only show minor cellular deficits and develop normally to adulthood.

Disorders for NTF4 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for NTF4 Gene (162662)


  • Glaucoma 1, open angle, O (GLC1O) [MIM:613100]: A form of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). POAG is characterized by a specific pattern of optic nerve and visual field defects. The angle of the anterior chamber of the eye is open, and usually the intraocular pressure is increased. However, glaucoma can occur at any intraocular pressure. The disease is generally asymptomatic until the late stages, by which time significant and irreversible optic nerve damage has already taken place. Note=Disease susceptibility may be associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
