L1 and NCAM1 co-expressed on a single cell interact with each other via the fourth Ig domain of NCAM1 and the oligomannose type oligosaccharides carried by L1. This interaction has synergetic effects on L1-mediated cell aggregation and adhesion, a phenomenon referred to as 'assisted homophilic L1-L1 trans-binding'.
