Definition
Interacting selectively and non-covalently with a neurotrophin, any of a family of growth factors that prevent apoptosis in neurons and promote nerve growth. Source: http://www.mercksource.com/, PR:000021998, GOC:jl
Comment
Note that mammalian NT-5 was initially named differently from amphibian NT-4 because of sequence differences, but the two genes were later shown to be functionally equivalent [SF:919858].
