NGF [ENSP00000358525]
 
nerve growth factor (beta polypeptide); Nerve growth factor is important for the development and maintenance of the sympathetic and sensory nervous systems. It stimulates division and differentiation of sympathetic and embryonic sensory neurons
NGFR [ENSP00000172229]
 
nerve growth factor receptor (TNFR superfamily, member 16); Low affinity receptor which can bind to NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4. Can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells
