In multicellular organisms, intercellular communication is essential for homeostatic functions and has a major role in tissue responses to stress. Here, we describe the effects of expression of different connexins, which form gap junction channels with different permeabilities, on the responses of human cells to ionizing radiation. Exposure of confluent(More)
Gap junction intercellular communication/Cell killing/Potentially lethal damage repair/DNA damage/ Linear energy transfer of space radiation. Understanding the mechanisms that underlay the biological effects of particulate radiations is essential for space exploration and for radiotherapy. Here, we investigated the role of gap junction intercellular(More)
