The functional diversity of gap junction intercellular channels arising from the large number of connexin isoforms is significantly increased by heterotypic interactions between members of this family. This is particularly evident in the rectifying behavior of Cx26/Cx32 heterotypic channels (. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA. 88:8410-8414). The channel(More)
Connexins form a variety of gap junction channels that vary in their developmental and tissue-specific levels of expression, modulation of gating by transjunctional voltage and posttranslational modification, and unitary channel conductance (gamma j). Despite a 10-fold variation in gamma j, whether connexin-specific channels possess distinct ionic and(More)
The College's 23rd annual Spring Research Conference (SRC) was held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 21. The SRC gives students, both undergraduate and graduate, a chance to present the results of their research from the previous year. Each student participant had twelve minutes to present his or her research, with three minutes afterward to answer(More)
