NLGN1A gene on chromosome 3q26.31 that encodes neuroligin 1, a neuronal cell surface protein involved in cell–cell interactions, which forms intercellular junctions by binding to beta-neurexins. NLLGN1 may play role in forming or maintaining synaptic junctions; it may be involved in specification of excitatory synapses.
