latrophilin 3 Plays a role in cell-cell adhesion and neuron guidance via its interactions with FLRT2 and FLRT3 that are expressed at the surface of adjacent cells. Plays a role in the development of glutamatergic synapses in the cortex. Important in determining the connectivity rates between the principal neurons in the cortex. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family. LN-TM7 subfamily. 4 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
