Gene: NGF (nerve growth factor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: NGF
Name: nerve growth factor
CRRD ID: 1352304
Description: Exhibits peptidase regulator activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway via death domain receptors; neuron apoptotic process; and positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including dendrite; neuron projection terminus; and synaptic vesicle. Implicated in IgA glomerulonephritis; asthma; end stage renal disease; hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type 5; and interstitial cystitis. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); interstitial cystitis; lung disease (multiple); neurogenic bladder; and obstructive sleep apnea.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
