Hepatic gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC), mediated principally by connexin 32, provides a mechanism for regulating multicellular activities between neighbouring cells. The control of Cx32 gene expression at the transcriptional level has been investigated in rat liver tissue and in primary rat hepatocytes during culture. Several response… CONTINUE READING
