DLG4

A gene on chromosome 17p13.1 that encodes a member of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) family that forms a complex with another MAGUK, DLG2, and is recruited into NMDA receptor and potassium channel clusters. DLG2 and DLG4 may interact at postsynaptic sites to form a multimeric scaffold for clustering of receptors, ion channels and signalling proteins.
