Technical Data
NEUROLIGIN 3 (NLGN3, ASPGX1, AUTSX1, Gliotactin Homolog, HNL3, KIAA1480, Neuroligin-3, NL3)
NLGN3 is a 110-114kD member of the type-B carboxyesterase/lipase family of proteins. It is a neuronal transmembrane protein that forms Ca++-dependent intercellular junctions with short b-neurexin isoforms. This seems to contribute to both glutamatergic and GABAergic synapse formation. Mutations in NLGN3 are associated with a reduction in protein expression and the occurrence of autism. Mature human NLGN3 is an 811aa type I transmembrane protein. It contains a 672aa extracellular domain (ECD) aa38-709, plus a 118aa cytoplasmic region. The ECD possesses a nonfunctional carboxyesterase domain aa41-625 Multiple splice variants exist. There is a deletion of aa153-172 that may also be accompanied by an alternative start site at Met118, and a deletion of aa153-192 that may also be accompanied by a five Lys substitution for aa554-848. Over aa39-709, human NLGN3 shares 99aa identity with mouse NLGN3.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
