Details for receptor: trkA

EndoNet ID: ENR00897

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

    Induced phenotypes

    • thermoception
      • Neuroanatomical examinatio of the PNS of mice lacking trkA revealed extensive neuronal cell loss in trigeminal, dorsal root, and sympathetic ganglia. [1]
      • Mice lacking the trkA exhibit deficiencies in thermoception. [2]
      • Neurotrophin signaling through trk receptors is important in the development and maintenance of the mammalian nervous system. [2]
