Coupling of astrocyte connexins Cx26, Cx30, Cx43 to oligodendrocyte Cx29, Cx32, Cx47: Implications from normal and connexin32 knockout mice
Oligodendrocytes in vivo form heterologous gap junctions with astrocytes. These oligodendrocyte/astrocyte (A/O) gap junctions contain multiple connexins (Cx), including Cx26, Cx30, and Cx43 on theExpand

Cell-Specific Expression of Connexins and Evidence of Restricted Gap Junctional Coupling between Glial Cells and between Neurons
The transmembrane connexin proteins of gap junctions link extracellularly to form channels for cell-to-cell exchange of ions and small molecules. Two primary hypotheses of gap junction coupling inExpand

Update on connexins and gap junctions in neurons and glia in the mammalian nervous system
Among the 20 proposed members of the connexin family of proteins that form gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC) channels in mammalian tissues, over half are reported to be expressed inExpand

Immunogold evidence that neuronal gap junctions in adult rat brain and spinal cord contain connexin-36 but not connexin-32 or connexin-43.
Physiological and ultrastructural evidence indicates that gap junctions link many classes of neurons in mammalian central nervous system (CNS), allowing direct electrical and metabolic communication.Expand

Connexin30 in rodent, cat and human brain: selective expression in gray matter astrocytes, co-localization with connexin43 at gap junctions and late developmental appearance
We previously presented evidence [Nagy et al. (1997) Neuroscience 78, 533-548] that, in addition to their ubiquitous expression of connexin43, astrocytes produce a second connexin suggested to beExpand

Connexins and gap junctions of astrocytes and oligodendrocytes in the CNS
This review article summarizes early and recent literature on the structure, distribution and composition of gap junctions between astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, and the differential expression ofExpand

Connexin29 and connexin32 at oligodendrocyte and astrocyte gap junctions and in myelin of the mouse central nervous system
The cellular localization, relation to other glial connexins (Cx30, Cx32, and Cx43), and developmental expression of Cx29 were investigated in the mouse central nervous system (CNS) with an anti‐Cx29Expand

Synergy between Electrical Coupling and Membrane Properties Promotes Strong Synchronization of Neurons of the Mesencephalic Trigeminal Nucleus
Electrical synapses are known to form networks of extensively coupled neurons in various regions of the mammalian brain. The mesencephalic trigeminal (MesV) nucleus, formed by the somata of primaryExpand
