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.

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 p75(NTR)-mediated signaling and NGF Pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include signaling receptor binding and obsolete signal transducer activity, downstream of receptor. An important paralog of this gene is NTF3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NGF Gene

  • Nerve growth factor is important for the development and maintenance of the sympathetic and sensory nervous systems (PubMed:14976160, PubMed:20978020). Extracellular ligand for the NTRK1 and NGFR receptors, activates cellular signaling cascades to regulate neuronal proliferation, differentiation and survival (PubMed:20978020) (Probable). The immature NGF precursor (proNGF) functions as ligand for the heterodimeric receptor formed by SORCS2 and NGFR, and activates cellular signaling cascades that lead to inactivation of RAC1 and/or RAC2, reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton and neuronal growth cone collapse. In contrast to mature NGF, the precursor form (proNGF) promotes neuronal apoptosis (in vitro) (By similarity). Inhibits metalloproteinase-dependent proteolysis of platelet glycoprotein VI (PubMed:20164177). Binds lysophosphatidylinositol and lysophosphatidylserine between the two chains of the homodimer. The lipid-bound form promotes histamine relase from mast cells, contrary to the lipid-free form (By similarity).

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.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Homodimer (PubMed:10490030, PubMed:15131306, PubMed:17196528). The homodimer interacts with a single NTRK1 chain (PubMed:10490030, PubMed:17196528). The homodimer interacts with a single NGFR chain (PubMed:15131306). The NGF dimer interacts with a single SORCS2 chain (via extracellular domain) (By similarity). The NGF precursor (proNGF) binds to a receptor complex formed by SORT1 and NGFR, which leads to NGF endocytosis. Both mature NGF and the immature NGF precursor (proNGF) interact with SORCS2 and with the heterodimer formed by SORCS2 and NGFR (via extracellular domains) (By similarity). The NGF precursor (proNGF) has much higher affinity for SORCS2 than mature NGF. The NGF precursor (proNGF) has much higher affinity for SORT1 than mature NGF (By similarity). Interacts with ADAM10 in a divalent cation-dependent manner (PubMed:20164177).
