Immunohistochemical staining (Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) of human prostate with CHL1 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB30337) shows strong positivity in peripheral nerves at 1:200-1:500 dilution.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the L1 gene family of neural cell adhesion molecules. It is a neural recognition molecule that may be involved in signal transduction pathways. The deletion of one copy of this gene may be responsible for mental defects in patients with 3p- syndrome. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants of this gene have been described, but their full length nature is not known. [provided by RefSeq
