This model contains a biallelic deletion of the neuroligin 3 gene (Nlgn3). Mutations in Nlgn3 have been linked with autism and Asperger’s syndrome.

This model is useful for understanding the role of neuroligins in the development of autism spectrum disorders.


Neuroligin 3 (Nlgn3) Knockout Rat Characteristics:

  • This model was created in collaboration with Autism Speaks and is currently undergoing phenotypic characterization by Dr. Richard Paylor at Baylor College of Medicine
  • Preliminary results suggest that Nlgn3 knockout rats are less anxious and exhibit decreased juvenile play, deficits in sensorimotor gating and increased perseverative behaviors
  • Homozygous knockout rats exhibit complete loss of target protein as demonstrated by Western blot
  • Mutations in Nlgn3 have been associated with autism and Asperger’s syndrome
  • Nlgn3 is a member of the broader neuroligins, neuronal cell surface proteins thought to play a role in synaptic plasticity
  • Background Strain: Sprague-Dawley

Research Applications:

  • Autism
  • Asperger's syndrome
  • Synaptic plasticity
