Biological Information

Purity Over 90% (N-terminal amino acid sequencing and SDS gel electrophoresis - one major band at 14 KDa)
Purification method Purified by sequential chromatography


SwissProt ID Link P01138
Gene Aliases NGF, NGFB
Function Nerve 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
Subcellular Location Secreted
Involvement in Disease Neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, 5 (HSAN5)
The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene. A form of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy, a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by degeneration of dorsal root and autonomic ganglion cells, and by sensory and/or autonomic abnormalities. HSAN5 patients manifest loss of pain perception and impaired temperature sensitivity, ulcers, and in some cases self-mutilation. The autonomic involvement is variable
Subunit Structure Homodimer. Interacts with ADAM10 in a divalent cation-dependent manner
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the NGF-beta family
