This gene encodes a member of the neurexophilin family of neuropeptide-like glycoproteins. The encoded protein contains a variable N-terminal domain, a highly conserved neurexophilin and PC-esterase (NXPE) central domain, a short linker region, and a cysteine-rich C-terminal domain. This protein binds alpha neurexins, a group of presynaptic transmembrane receptors that promote adhesion between dendrites and axons. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
