Neurexin Regulates Visual Function via Mediating Retinoid Transport to Promote Rhodopsin Maturation

Neurexins are cell adhesion molecules involved in synapse formation and synaptic regulation. Mutations in the neurexin genes are linked to a number of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism. Here, we show that the Drosophila homolog of α-Neurexin is critical for fly visual function. Lack of Neurexin leads to significantly impaired visual function due… CONTINUE READING
