The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 92 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionPutative neuronal cell surface protein involved in cell-cell-interactions.
Tissue specificityExpressed at highest levels in heart. Expressed at lower levels in liver, skeletal muscle and pancreas and at very low levels in brain.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in NLGN4X may be the cause of susceptibility to autism X-linked type 2 (AUTSX2) [MIM:300495]. AUTSX2 is a pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), prototypically characterized by impairments in reciprocal social interaction and communication, restricted and stereotyped patterns of interests and activities, and the presence of developmental abnormalities by 3 years of age. Defects in NLGN4X may be the cause of susceptibility to X-linked Asperger syndrome 2 (ASPGX2) [MIM:300497]. ASPGX2 is considered to be a form of childhood autism.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the type-B carboxylesterase/lipase family.
