Neuroligin 4, Y-linked
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] (from

The coding sequences and splice junctions of the NLGN4Y gene were analyzed in 335 male samples (290 with autism and 45 with mental retardation) to analyze sequence variants in NLGN4Y that are associated with autism or mental retardation.
