Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have several functions, including GPI-linked ephrin receptor activity; nerve growth factor binding activity; and nerve growth factor receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to formalin induced pain; nerve growth factor signaling pathway; and nervous system development. Localizes to axon; cell surface; and endosome. Used to study hereditary sensory neuropathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; hereditary sensory neuropathy; hereditary sensory neuropathy type 4; and schizophrenia. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; gonad; limb; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human NTRK1 (neurotrophic receptor tyrosine kinase 1).
