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 NCBI)

Association of Y chromosome haplotypes with autism.
Mahbubul Huq et al., Detroit, United States. In J Child Neurol, 2009
investigated 12 single-nucleotide polymorphisms in Y-linked neuroligin 4, transducin b-like 1, and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 1a genes, results suggest a Y chromosome effect in autism
Analysis of the neuroligin 4Y gene in patients with autism.
Sommer et al., Duarte, United States. In Psychiatr Genet, 2008
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.
Analysis of four neuroligin genes as candidates for autism.
Järvelä et al., Helsinki, Finland. In Eur J Hum Genet, 2005
Neuroligin mutations most probably represent rare causes of autism; it is unlikely that the allelic variants in any of these genes would be major risk factors for autism.
