Neuroligins are cell adhesion molecules that interact with neurexins on adjacent cells to promote glutamatergic and GABAergic synapse formation in culture. We show here that neuroligin enhances nicotinic synapses on neurons in culture, increasing synaptic input. When neuroligin is overexpressed in neurons, the extracellular domain induces presynaptic(More)
Transcellular interactions between neuroligins (NL) and beta-neurexin have been widely documented to promote maturation and function of both glutamatergic and GABAergic synapses. Recently it has been shown that neuroligin-1 plays a similar role at nicotinic synapses on chick ciliary ganglion neurons in culture, acting from the postsynaptic side to enhance(More)
