MDGA1 Required for radial migration of cortical neurons in the superficial layer of the neocortex. Plays a role in the formation or maintenance of inhibitory synapses. May function by inhibiting the activity of NLGN2. Has been found in brain, heart, skeletal muscle and kidney. Found to be overexpressed in tumor tissues. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
