1. Gap junction formation was compared in the absence and presence of small peptides containing extracellular loop sequences of gap junction (connexin) proteins by measuring the time taken for pairs of spontaneously beating embryonic chick heart myoballs to synchronize beat rates. Test peptides were derived from connexin 32. Non-homologous peptides were(More)
