GENE - TERM ANNOTATION REPORT

RGD ID: 3214
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Ntrk3
Name: neurotrophic receptor tyrosine kinase 3
Acc ID: GO:0022011
Term: myelination in peripheral nervous system
Definition: The process in which neuronal axons and dendrites become coated with a segmented lipid-rich sheath (myelin) to enable faster and more energetically efficient conduction of electrical impulses. The sheath is formed by the cell membranes of Schwann cells in the peripheral nervous system. Adjacent myelin segments are separated by a non-myelinated stretch of axon called a node of Ranvier.
Definition Source(s): GO_REF:0000021, GOC:cls, GOC:dgh, GOC:dph, GOC:jid
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
