Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NLGN4Y Gene
This gene encodes a type I membrane protein that belongs to the family of neuroligins, which are cell adhesion molecules present at the postsynaptic side of the synapse, and may be essential for the formation of functional synapses. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]
