Background: Nogo Receptor/NgR
Nogo Receptor (NgR), also named reticulon 4 receptor, is a glycosylphosphoinositol (GPI)-anchored protein that belongs to the family of leucine-rich repeat (LRR) proteins (1). It is expressed predominantly in the central nervous systems in neurons and their axons. NgR plays an essential role in mediating axon growth inhibition induced by the structurally distinct myelin-derived proteins Nogo, myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG), and myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (Omgp) (2, 3). Human NgR cDNA encodes a 473 amino acid (aa) residue precursor with a 26 aa putative signal peptide, an LRR-type N-terminal region, eight LRR repeats, a cysteine-rich LRR-type C-terminal region, a GPI linkage domain and a 26 aa C-terminal propeptide that is removed in the mature form (1). All of the LRR domains within NgR are required for ligand binding and receptor oligomerization (4). NgR mediates its inhibitory actions by interacting with the p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR), a tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily (TNFRSF) member also known for modulating the activities of the Trk family of receptor tyrosine kinases, and for inducing apoptosis in neurons and oligodendrocytes (5). Upon ligand binding, NgR binds to and activates the p75NTR. The activated p75NTR then sequesters the Rho guanine dissociation inhibitor (Rho-GDI) away from Rho and allows Rho to change into the active GTP-bound state which can interact with signaling proteins to suppress axonal growth and regeneration (4). The truncated extracellular domain of NgR has been shown to bind the myelin-derived inhibitors and block inhibition of axon growth by myelin (6).
