- Beta nerve growth factor
- Beta NGF
- Beta-nerve growth factor
FunctionNerve 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).
Involvement in diseaseNeuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, 5
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NGF-beta family.
