Previous Symbols for NLGN4X Gene
This gene encodes a member of the type-B carboxylesterase/lipase protein family. The encoded protein belongs to a family of neuronal cell surface proteins. Members of this family may act as splice site-specific ligands for beta-neurexins and may be involved in the formation and remodeling of central nervous system synapses. The encoded protein interacts with discs large homolog 4 (DLG4). Mutations in this gene have been associated with autism and Asperger syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
GeneCards Summary for NLGN4X Gene
NLGN4X (Neuroligin 4, X-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NLGN4X include nlgn4-related x-linked mental retardation and autism susceptibility, x-linked 2. Among its related pathways are Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs). GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and neurexin family protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is CES2.
