Neurotrophin3 (NT3) is a member of the NGF family of neurotrophic factors (also named neurotrophins) that are required for the differentiation and survival of specific neuronal subpopulations in both the central as well as the peripheral nervous systems. The neurotrophin family is comprised of at least four proteins including NGF, BDNF, NT3, and NT4/5. NT-3 is expressed by neurons of the central nervous systems and can signal through the trk receptors. NT-3 promotes the growth and survival of nerve and glial cells. The amino acid sequences of human, murine and rat NT-3 are identical. Recombinant human NT-3 is a noncovalently linked homodimer, of two 13.6 kDa polypeptide monomers (240 total amino acid residues).Human and Mouse NT-3 sequences are identical.
