Neuroligin 3/NLGN3 in Human Brain.
Neuroligin 3/NLGN3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (cerebellum) using Human Neuroligin 3/NLGN3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6088) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Background: Neuroligin 3/NLGN3
NLGN3 (Neuroligin 3; also gliotactin homolog) is a 110-114 kDa member of the type-B carboxyesterase/lipase family of proteins. It is a neuronal transmembrane protein that forms Ca++-dependent intercellular junctions with short beta -neurexin isoforms. This seems to contribute to both glutamatergic and GABAergic synapse formation. Mutations in NLGN3 are associated with a reduction in protein expression and the occurrence of autism. Mature human NLGN3 is an 811 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane protein. It contains a 672 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 38-709), plus a 118 aa cytoplasmic region. The ECD possesses a nonfunctional carboxyesterase domain (aa 41-625). Multiple splice variants exist. There is a deletion of aa 153-172 that may also be accompanied by an alternative start site at Met118, and a deletion of aa 153-192 that may also be accompanied by a five Lys substitution for aa 554-848. Over aa 38-709, human NLGN3 shares 99% aa identity with mouse NLGN3.
