Trk receptors: roles in neuronal signal transduction.
TLDR
The most fascinating aspect of Trk receptor-mediated signaling is its interplay with signaling promoted by the pan-neurotrophin receptor p75NTR, which activates a distinct set of signaling pathways within cells that are in some instances synergistic and in other instances antagonistic to those activated by Trk receptors.
Neurotrophins and their receptors: signaling trios in complex biological systems
TLDR
This review summarizes recent surprises of how ligand-receptor pairing may affect diverse developmental events, regulate response to injury and extend their influence on memory and learning.
Selectivity in neurotrophin signaling: theme and variations.
  • R. Segal
  • Biology
    Annual review of neuroscience
  • 2003
TLDR
Variations in neurotrophin signaling have revealed variations in the Ras/MAP kinase, PI3 kinases, and phospholipase C pathways, which transmit spatial and temporal information, which may represent a general mechanism eliciting specificity in growth factor responses.
Neurotrophins and their receptors: A convergence point for many signalling pathways
  • M. Chao

  • 2003
TLDR
Recent findings that neurotrophins, in addition to promoting survival and differentiation, exert various effects through surprising interactions with other receptors and ion channels are reviewed.
Modulation of neurotrophin signaling by monoclonal antibodies.
TLDR
The power of monoclonal antibodies to modulate neurotrophin signaling promises to turn the rich biological insights into novel human medicines.
Neurotrophin Signaling and Alzheimer’s Disease Neurodegeneration − Focus on BDNF/TrkB Signaling
TLDR
The importance of neurotrophin signaling in brain development is highlighted by findings showing that knockout mice for any one of the neurotrophins or their receptors are fatal or exhibit severe neural defects.
Neurotrophin-regulated signalling pathways

  • Biology
    Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2006
TLDR
Three rare human genetic disorders, which result in deleterious effects on sensory perception, cognition and a variety of behaviours, have been shown to be attributable to mutations in brain-derived neurotrophic factor and two of the Trk receptors.
On Trk for Retrograde Signaling
Neurotrophin receptor homolog‐2 regulates nerve growth factor signaling
TLDR
Results indicate that NRH2 utilizes intracellular mechanisms to not only regulate NGF binding to TrkA, but also specifically modulate Trk a receptor signaling, thus adding further layers of complexity and specificity to neurotrophin signaling.

Neurotrophins: roles in neuronal development and function.
TLDR
Neurotrophins regulate development, maintenance, and function of vertebrate nervous systems, and control synaptic function and synaptic plasticity, while continuing to modulate neuronal survival.
Biochemical and functional interactions between the neurotrophin receptors trk and p75NTR
TLDR
A close proximity of the two neurotrophin receptors within cell membranes is indicated, and it is suggested that the signalling pathways they initiate may interact soon after their activation.
Cell Surface Trk Receptors Mediate NGF-Induced Survival While Internalized Receptors Regulate NGF-Induced Differentiation
TLDR
It is shown that dynamin function is required for ligand-dependent endocytosis of Trk receptors, and interactions between Trk receptor tyrosine kinases and intracellular signaling molecules are dictated both by phosphotyrosine motifs within the receptors and by the intrACEllular location of phosphorylated receptors.
Role of Phosphoinositide 3-Kinase and Endocytosis in Nerve Growth Factor-Induced Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase Activation via Ras and Rap1
TLDR
It is suggested that PI3-K may be required for the signals initiated by TrkA internalization and demonstrate that specific endocytic events may distinguish ERK signaling via Rap1 and Ras.
Insulin Receptor Substrate (IRS)-1 and IRS-2 Are Tyrosine-phosphorylated and Associated with Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase in Response to Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor in Cultured Cerebral Cortical Neurons*
TLDR
It is found that insulin receptor substrate (IRS)-1 and -2 are involved in the BDNF signaling pathway that activates PI3-K, a component in the signaling pathway of BDNF that promotes differentiation and survival of various types of neurons in the central nervous system.
Association of the Abl tyrosine kinase with the Trk nerve growth factor receptor
TLDR
The results suggest that c‐Abl may be recruited to the NGF receptor complex and be involved in regulating specific phosphorylation events that occur during neuronal differentiation.
