Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a protein secreted by the target of a neuron that stimulates the growth and differentiation of the sympathetic and certain sensory nerves. Nerve growth factor initially as a 7S proNGF peptide of 3 subunits, alpha, beta (2.5S) and gamma, with the beta (2.5S) subunit having sole responsibility for nerve and growth stimulating activity.
