Background: Neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor type 1 (also called NTRK1; MTC; p140-TrkA; TRK; Trk-A; TRK1; TRKA) is a member of the neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor family. NTRK1 is a membrane bound receptor that phosphorylates itself and members of the MAPK pathway upon neurotrophin binding. Genetic variations in NTRK1 have been linked to anhidrosis, congenital insensitivity to pain, cancer, and mental retardation.
