The antibody is specific to NGFR.
Neurotrophic factors control the survival, differentiation and maintenance of neurons in the peripheral and central nervous systems, and of other neural crest-derived cell types. Developing sympathetic neurons are absolutely dependent upon nerve growth factor (NGF) during the period of target competition in vivo. Antibodies reacting specifically with NGFR p75 are useful tools in the detection and characterization of NGFR p75, to enhance our understanding of a wide range of phenomena in the development, plasticity and repair of the nervous system.
