Gene: Ntrk2 (neurotrophic receptor tyrosine kinase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ntrk2
Name: neurotrophic receptor tyrosine kinase 2
RGD ID: 3213
Description: Exhibits several functions, including brain-derived neurotrophic factor binding activity; brain-derived neurotrophic factor-activated receptor activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to brain-derived neurotrophic factor stimulus; positive regulation of cell communication; and regulation of neuron projection development. Localizes to several cellular components, including distal axon; perikaryon; and postsynaptic density. Used to study glaucoma. Biomarker of several diseases, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; colitis; mental depression; post-traumatic stress disorder; and temporal lobe epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; autistic disorder; early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 58; major depressive disorder; and morbid obesity. Orthologous to human NTRK2 (neurotrophic receptor tyrosine kinase 2); PARTICIPATES IN brain-derived neurotrophic factor signaling pathway; mitogen activated protein kinase signaling pathway; neurotrophic factor signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
