Abstract To determine the role of the p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR) in sympathetic neuron development, we crossed transgenic mice with mutations in p75NTR, nerve growth factor (NGF) and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3). Neuron number is normal in sympathetic ganglia of adult p75NTR-/- mice. Mice heterozygous for a NGF deletion (NGF+/-) have 50\% fewer sympathetic neurons. In the absence of p75NTR (p75NTR-/- NGF+/-), however, neuron number is restored to wild-type levels. When NT-3 levels are reduced (p75NTR-/- NGF+/- NT3 +/-), neuron number decreases compared to p75NTR-/- NGF+/- NT3+/+. Thus, without p75NTR, NT3 substitutes for NGF, suggesting that p75 alters the neurotrophin specificity of TrkA in vivo.
