Affinity-purified antibodies to oligopeptides derived from two different regions of the carboxyterminus and cytoplasmic loop or to the last 103 C-terminal amino acids of mouse connexin37 (Cx37) were used to characterize expression of this gap junctional protein in endothelium of several murine tissues. Cx37 was expressed in endothelium of large blood vessels in brain, liver, kidney, spleen, heart, and lung, but not in capillaries. In addition, weak Cx37 immuno-signals were observed in lung… CONTINUE READING
