Placental claudin expression and its regulation by endogenous sex steroid hormones
Tight junctions (TJs) form continuous intercellular contacts controlling the paracellular transportation across the cell-to-cell junction. TJ components include the peripheral protein zonulaExpand

Calbindin-D9k Ablation Disrupt Glucose/Pancreatic Insulin Homeostasis
It has been proposed that cellular Ca2+ signals activate hormone secretion. In pancreatic β cells, which produce insulin, Ca2+ signals have been known to contribute to insulin secretion. Prior toExpand

Uterine expression of tight junctions in the Canine uterus
tacts in intercellular junctions. TJs involve integral proteins such as occludin (OCLN) and claudins (CLDNs) as well as peripheral proteins such as zona occludens-1 (ZO-1) and junctional adhesionExpand
