Mutation and polymorphism analysis of the TRKA (NTRK1) gene encoding a high-affinity receptor for nerve growth factor in congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA) families


The human TRKA gene encodes a high-affinity tyrosine kinase receptor for nerve growth factor. Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA) is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder reported from various countries and characterized by anhidrosis (inability to sweat), the absence of reaction to noxious stimuli, and mental retardation. We have… (More)
