Neurexins and neuroligins constitute large families of synaptic cell-surface molecules that play essential roles in neurotransmission and are linked to autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenia. To better understand their gene regulation, we analyze putative promoter regions for transcriptional activity. Expression involves the brain-specific regulator MeCP2 and methylation frequency, suggesting an unexpected pathway for regulating their distribution, splicing or activity-dependent plasticity.
