Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits neurexin family protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including regulation of nervous system development; regulation of synaptic vesicle cycle; and synapse assembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including the external side of plasma membrane; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of plasma membrane. Predicted to colocalize with the NMDA selective glutamate receptor complex and postsynaptic density. Is expressed in blood vessel and brain. Orthologous to human NLGN1 (neuroligin 1).
