NTRK2 (TRKB) belongs to the neurotrophic factor family of related polypeptides central to the development and maintenance of the mammalian nervous system. NTRK2 is the receptor for brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Together, NTRK2 and BDNF regulate both short-term synaptic functions and long-term potentiation of brain synapses.
