NLGN3

A gene on chromosome Xq13.1 that encodes neuroligin 3, a neuronal cell surface protein involved in cell–cell interactions, which forms intercellular junctions by binding to beta-neurexins. It may play role in forming or maintaining synaptic junctions, as well as glia–glia or glia–neuron interactions in the developing peripheral nervous system.
 
Molecular pathology
Defects of NLGN3 have been linked to an increased susceptibility to Asperger syndrome (X-linked type 1) and to autism (X-linked type 1).

At lower temperature, [K.sup.+]/[[pi].sup.+] ratio for NL3 parameter set is the same as that for HRG model, while, for TM1 parameter set, [K.sup.+]/[[pi].sup.+] ratio is less compared to that of HRG model.
Moreover, in vitro studies have also revealed that NL4X deletion results in neurodevelopmental defects during the formation of neurons and their connections as well as in decreased gene expression of NL1 and NL3 [124].
However, according to NL3, too often new technology is used that has not yet matured and thus is causing problems.
No differences were seen between WT and NL3 mice and no effect of housing on any measure was evident indicating that any differences seen in dyadic interactions were not due to time spent self-grooming.

For BCM, 8-d-old seedlings were manually inoculated with the NL3 necrosis-inducing strain of the BCM virus, using infected bean leaf extracts and sterile cheesecloth pads (Morales et al., 1991).

In addition, the necrosis-inducing strains of the virus such as NL3 can induce systemic necrosis in genotypes that carry the dominant I gene, which conditions resistance to the non necrosis-inducing strains of the virus (Drijfhout, 1978).
