Technical Data
Nerve Growth Factor Receptor, p75 (NGFR, NGF Receptor, CD271, Gp80 LNGFR, p75 ICD, p75 Neurotrophin, p75 NTR, Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor Superfamily Member 16, TNFR Superfamily Member 16, TNFRSF16)
p75NTR was originally discovered as a low affinity nerve growth factor receptor. Later it was found that it was the receptor for all neurotrophins. It mediates signals of neurotrophins for neuronal survival, apoptosis, neurite outgrowth and synaptic plasticity. Recently, it has been revealed that p75NTR not only acts as the receptor for neurotrophins, but also the receptor for many other pathological ligands such as prions, rabies virus and amyloid beta. p75NTR also acts as a co-receptor for NOGO which mediates inhibitory signals of myelin associated protein. p75NTR is highly expressed in a number of non-neuronal and neuronal cells including motor neurons during development and also in damaged neurons. p75NTR is a low affinity receptor which can bind to NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4. Can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells.
