  • RelevanceNeurotrophins activate tyrosine kinase receptors of the TRK family (TRKA, TRKB and TRKC) and they all share a common low affinity receptor (p75NTR or p75). Although p75NTR does not appear to directly transduce NGF signals, this receptor appears to increase the responsiveness of the TRK receptors and plays a role in the retrograde transport of neurotrophin signals from axon terminals to the cell body. The expression of trk gene neurotrophin receptors in mouse is tabulated by Barbacid (1994). NGF binds with high affinity and activates the TRKA tyrosine kinase receptor, which is apparently responsible for signal transduction. BDNF activates the TRKB tyrosine kinase receptor, which it shares with NT-4. NT-3 activates the TrkC tyrosine kinase receptor, but can also activate TRKA and TRKB receptors in certain cell systems. NT-4 primarily activates the TRKB tyrosine kinase receptor, which it shares with BDNF.

Thank you for your enquiry. Ab18137 recognizes both TrkA and TrkB receptors and is very weakly reactive with TrkC. We do not routinely offer free or trial sized samples for testing purposes. Our policy at Abcam is that if an antibody does not work ...
