    224 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    24084 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • May form homooligomers or heterooligomers with CBLN1 and CBLN3 prior to secretion. Once secreted, does not interact with other CBLN family members. Interacts with GRID2, and more weakly with GRID1. Interacts with NRXN1 and NRXN2 long and short isoforms produced by alternative promoter usage. Weakly interacts with NRXN3 short isoform and not at all with NRXN3 long isoform (By similarity).
