[Localization of the connexin 43 gap-junction protein in silica-exposed alveolar epithelial cells].


OBJECTIVE To study the effect of supernatants from silicon dioxide(SiO2) stimulated pulmonary alveolar macrophages(PAM) on the localization of connexin 43(Cx43) so as to explore the inhibition level of SiO2 on alveolar epithelial cellular gap-junctional communication(GJIC). METHODS The supermatants from the primary cultured PAM were prepared, and then… (More)
