This control protein consists of the recombinant protein (aa 46 - 165 of rat neuroligin 1) that has been used for immunization. It has been tested in preadsorption experiments and blocks efficiently and specifically the corresponding signal in Western blots. The amount of protein needed for efficient blocking depends on the titer and on the affinity of the antibody to the antigen.
Neuroligins form a family of postsynaptic cell surface molecules that interact with β-neurexins. They are 110-120 kDa polypeptides with homology to acetylcholine esterase. Neuroligin 1 and neuroligin 3 are specifically localized to post-synaptic densities of excitatory synapses whereas neuroligin 2 is found exclusively on inhibitory synapses.
Mutations in neuroligin 3 and neuroligin 4 have been implicated with a rare, heritable form of autism.
