Summary
This gene encodes a member of the neurexin protein family. Members of this family function in the vertebrate nervous system as cell adhesion molecules and receptors. This protein contains epidermal growth factor repeats and laminin G domains. In addition, it includes an F5/8 type C domain, discoidin/neuropilin- and fibrinogen-like domains, and thrombospondin N-terminal-like domains. This protein may also play a role in proper neurotransmission in the dopaminergic and GABAergic systems and mutations in this gene may be associated with certain psychiatric illnesses. A polymorphism in an intron of this gene may be associated with longevity.
