NTRK1

NTRK1

A gene on chromosome 1q21-q22 that encodes neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor type 1 (TrkA) which, after neurotrophin binding, phosphorylates itself (autophosphorylates) and members of the MAPK pathway. TrkA potently binds nerve growth factor (NGF) and is involved in differentiation and survival of neurons and in control of gene expression of enzymes involved in neurotransmitter synthesis. It is involved in cell differentiation and may play a role in specifying sensory neuron subtypes.

Molecular pathology
NTRK1 mutations are associated with congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis, self-mutilating behaviour, mental retardation and cancer.

This was confirmed in a landmark study by Wiesner et al (169) in 2014, which demonstrated in-frame fusion transcripts resulting in the overexpression of kinase genes (including ROS1, ALK, NTRK1, RET, and BRAF) in just more than 50% of spitzoid neoplasms.
For example, a mouse model of AEL that included mutations in TP53 and NTRK1, a kinase in a signaling pathway, was exquisitely sensitive to the inhibitor larotrectinib.

According to the company, the Seraseq NTRK FFPE RNA reference material contains 15 clinically significant NTRK RNA fusions across NTRK1, NTRK2 and NTRK3 genes and are to be used by clinical laboratories looking to validate their detection by next-generation sequencing (NGS) methods.
We found significant differences in six: NGF (p < 0.001), NGFR (p < 0.05), NTRK1 (p < 0.01), GFRA1 (p < 0.01), GFAP (p < 0.001), and GDNF (p < 0.05) (see Figure 2).
The other diagnoses were excluded after the genetic study which detected mutations in the NTRK1 gene responsible for CIPA in 2015.

En la segunda fase, con las 27 proteinas extraidas (NTRK1, ELAVL1, RAB5A, GTSE1, OCRL, NXF1, GRB2, CLTC, RAB8A, RAB1A, RAB6A, SSX2IP, XPO1, FAM109A, FAM109B, SPINT2, GOLGA5, CEP128, SCLT1, CEP170, HERC2, SCN2B, ENPP6, VSIG4, BTN2A1, CACNG4, RAB14), se construyo una red de interaccion en el Software Cytoscape version 3.3.0 (Shannon, et al., 2003).
Esta enfermedad se puede generar por herencia genetica o por radiacion, y se ven afectados genes como: RET, BRAF, RAS, EIF1AX, PPM1D y CHEK2 y translocaciones que afectan PPARg, NTRK1, NTRK3, THADA y FGFR2, ademas de alteraciones moleculares como cadherina epitelial, molecula neural de adhesion celular (N-CAM), p-catenina, p53 y p63 [1,3].
In this condition genetic mutation occurs at NTRK1 gene which is inherited as autosomal recessive disorder.
Such efforts have already resulted in the identification of fusions for FGFR1, FGFR2, and FGFR3 (33,34) as well as for ROS1, (35,36) RET, (36) and NTRK1, (37) with clinical trials also having been initiated with corresponding inhibitors.
