Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0009543
UniProt IDP04629
Primary gene name(s)NTRK1
Synonym gene name(s)MTC, TRK, TRKA
Protein nameHigh affinity nerve growth factor receptor
Protein functionReceptor tyrosine kinase involved in the development and the maturation of the central and peripheral nervous systems through regulation of proliferation, differentiation and survival of sympathetic and nervous neurons, PubMed:27676246. High affinity receptor for NGF which is its primary ligand, it can also bind and be activated by NTF3/neurotrophin-3. However, NTF3 only supports axonal extension through NTRK1 but has no effect on neuron survival. Upon dimeric NGF ligand-binding, undergoes homodimerization, autophosphorylation and activation. Recruits, phosphorylates and/or activates several downstream effectors including SHC1, FRS2, SH2B1, SH2B2 and PLCG1 that regulate distinct overlapping signaling cascades driving cell survival and differentiation. Through SHC1 and FRS2 activates a GRB2-Ras-MAPK cascade that regulates cell differentiation and survival. Through PLCG1 controls NF-Kappa-B activation and the transcription of genes involved in cell survival. Through SHC1 and SH2B1 controls a Ras-PI3 kinase-AKT1 signaling cascade that is also regulating survival. In absence of ligand and activation, may promote cell death, making the survival of neurons dependent on trophic factors. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:27676246}.; FUNCTION: Isoform TrkA-III is resistant to NGF, constitutively activates AKT1 and NF-kappa-B and is unable to activate the Ras-MAPK signaling cascade. Antagonizes the anti-proliferative NGF-NTRK1 signaling that promotes neuronal precursors differentiation. Isoform TrkA-III promotes angiogenesis and has oncogenic activity when overexpressed.
Subcellular locationCell membrane {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15488758, ECO:0000269|PubMed:27676246};
Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15488758}. Early endosome membrane {ECO:0000250};
Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000250}. Late endosome membrane {ECO:0000250};
Single-pass type I membrane protein {ECO:0000250}. Note=Internalized to endosomes upon binding of NGF or NTF3 and further transported to the cell body via a retrograde axonal transport. Localized at cell membrane and early endosomes before nerve growth factor, NGF stimulation. Recruited to late endosomes after NGF stimulation. Colocalized with RAPGEF2 at late endosomes, By similarity. {ECO:0000250}.
