Neurexin regulates the survival of cerebellar granule cells independently of synapses. The findings shed new light on the mechanisms behind neurodevelopmental disorders like schizophrenia and ASD.
A new study reveals insights into the pathological mechanisms that cause dysfunctional synapses.
Researchers describe the diversity of neurexin proteins which are essential in the creation of synapses.
A study shows another family of proteins linked to neurodevelopmental disorders regulates the function of neuroligins and neurexins in order to suppress the development of inhibitory synapses.
