ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • mice with NGF receptor p75 mutation are viable and fertile display markedly decreased sensory innervation, loss of heat sensitivity associated with ulcers in the distal extremities
  • light-induced photoreceptor apoptosis in p75NTR knockout mice is significantly reduced
  • impairment of hippocampal long-term potentiation in p75NTR-deficient mouse
  • mice depleted for p75NTR exacerbate liver pathology and inhibited hepatocyte proliferation in vivo
