|Precautions||NGFR Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in the regulation of the translocation of GLUT4 to the cell surface in adipocytes and skeletal muscle cells in response to insulin, probably by regulating RAB31 activity, and thereby contributes to the regulation of insulin-dependent glucose uptake (By similarity). Low affinity receptor which can bind to NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4. Can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells. Necessary for the circadian oscillation of the clock genes ARNTL/BMAL1, PER1, PER2 and NR1D1 in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the brain and in liver and of the genes involved in glucose and lipid metabolism in the liver.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|

NGFR Antibody: The tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and TNF receptor (TNFR) gene superfamilies regulate numerous biological functions including cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival through regulating the activation of the transcription factor NF-κB and various mitogen-activated protein kinases. Nerve growth factor receptor (NGFR) was one of the earliest characterized members of this family. Also known as the low-affinity receptor p75NTR, this receptor is involved in several diverse functions such as apoptosis, neurite outgrowth during development, and myelination. Its ligands include NGF, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), NT3, and NT4. NGFR can also associate with other NGF receptors such as Trk through the cytosolic and transmembrane domains and thus can function as a co-receptor that refines Trk affinity and specificity for neurotrophins. Finally, upon binding of various neurotrophins, NGFR associates with tumor necrosis factor receptor-6 (TRAF6), suggesting that it can potentially function as a signal transducer for NGF signals through NGFR.
