    p75NTR is visualized with Anti-p75 NGF Receptor (extracellular) Antibody (#ANT-007), (1:200). Note that human cancer cell lines from hemapoietic origin show high p75NTR expression, while cell lines from prostate and colon cancer origin show lower levels. Interestingly, p75NTR from rat (right blot and the C6 cell line) and human (left blot) samples run with a different apparent MW, probably due to species-specific differential glycosylation.

    Immunoprecipitation of 3T3/p75NTR transfected cells:
    1. Cell lysate + protein A beads.
    2. Cell lysate + protein A beads + pre-immune rabbit serum.
    3. Cell lysate + protein A beads + Anti-p75 NGF Receptor (extracellular) Antibody (#ANT-007).
    4. Cell lysate.

Scientific background

The p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR) is a member of the TNF receptor superfamily. p75NTR, like all the superfamily members is a type I transmembrane protein with tandem cysteine-rich domains in the extracellular portion and a intracellular death domain. p75NTR binds its ligands as a homodimer but can also form heterodimers with other receptors such as TrkATrkBTrkCNogo receptor and sortilin. The precise multimeric receptor complex formed between p75NTR and the other receptors will determine the ligand being recognized (see below) and the biological response to its binding.

As it name implies, p75NTR binds all the neurotrophins (NGFBDNFNT-3 and NT-4) with similar nM affinities. Co-expression of p75NTR with the Trk receptors enhances the ability to bind and respond to the specific neurotrophin and induces cell survival. On the other hand, it has recently been demonstrated that p75NTR binds with high affinity to the unprocessed form of NGF (proNGF) probably as a complex with sortilin and this leads to cell death by apoptosis. Finally, a multimeric complex of p75NTR and Nogo receptor binds myelin proteins such as Nogo-66, MAG and OmgP resulting in inhibition of axonal growth.

Last update: 04/10/2020

Anti-p75 NGF Receptor (extracellular) Antibody (#ANT-007) is a highly specific antibody directed against an extracellular epitope of the human protein. The antibody can be used in western blot, immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry, live cell imaging and indirect flow cytometry applications. It has been designed to recognize p75NTR from human, mouse and rat samples.
