General description

Recognizes the low affinity human NGFR p75 (also known as gp75NGFR , p75NGFR and p75NTR). The epitope recognized by the antibody exists within the third or fourth cysteine-rich repeats of the NGFR molecule. May be used in various immunoassays including inhibition of NGF binding to p75-NGFR and as a cholinergic immunotoxin.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Neurotrophins (NT) are growth factors that are essential for the development and maintenance of the nervous system. One of the receptors that mediate the effects of NTs is the Nerve Growth Factor Receptor/TNFRSF16 (p75NGFR, p75NTR). NGFR mediates the effects of NGF that are important in the survival and differentiation of neurons and neural crest-derived cells, during embryonic and early postnatal development. Expression of NGFR has been associated with favorable prognosis and survival in breast and pancreatic cancers.
