NGL‑1/LRRC4C in Human Spinal Cord.
NGL‑1/LRRC4C was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human spinal cord using Mouse Anti-Human NGL‑1/LRRC4C Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4899) 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). Specific staining was localized to the dorsal horn.

Human NGL-1 (Netrin-G1 ligand; gene name LRRC4C) is a 67 kDa (predicted for mature protein), type I transmembrane cell adhesion molecule that is a member of the NGL family of proteins (1, 2). It is synthesized from a precursor that is 640 amino acids (aa) in length that contains a 44 aa signal sequence, a 483 aa extracellular region, a 21 aa transmembrane region, and a short cytoplasmic tail of 92 aa. The extracellular region of NGL-1 consists of nine leucine-rich repeats (LRRs) that are flanked by LRR N-terminal and LRR C-terminal domains, and followed by an Ig-like C2‑type domain (1, 2). The cytoplasmic region contains a C‑terminal Glu-Thr-Gln-Ile sequence that corresponds to a potential PDZ (postsynaptic density-95/discs large/zona occludens-1) domain-binding motif (1, 2). Human NGL-1 shares 99.7% aa sequence identity with mouse NGL-1. Mouse NGL-1 is highly expressed in the developing cerebral cortex and the striatum at embryonic day 14 (1). Postnatally, NGL-1 is expressed exclusively in the brain, with the highest expression found in the cerebral cortex as a whole, and in individual neocortical areas such as the frontal, parietal and occipital lobes (1). Moderate expression of NGL-1 occurs in the putamen, amygdala, hippocampus and medulla oblongata (1). Weak expression is found in the caudate nucleus and thalamus (1). Functionally, membrane-bound cell-surface NGL-1 binds to netrin-G1 specifically through its LRR region, and in the developing brain, may promote neurite outgrowth of thalamocortical axons (1‑4).
