Summary
This gene encodes a GPI-anchored, cell membrane bound member of the Ly6/uPAR (LU) superfamily of proteins containing the unique three-finger LU domain. This protein interacts with nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs), and is thought to function as a modulator of nAChR activity to prevent excessive excitation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. Read-through transcription between this gene and the neighboring downstream gene (SLURP2) generates naturally-occurring transcripts (LYNX1-SLURP2) that encode a fusion protein comprised of sequence sharing identity with each individual gene product.

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
