Gap junction functionality and intercellular exchange of chemical messengers and other biologically important cellular signals makes communication between adjacent cells possible and is essential for multicellular living systems. This intercellular communication is carried out through gap junction channels that are comprised of multimeric connexin (Cx) proteins and that provide physical linkages between neighboring cells. This Cx-specific gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC) helps… CONTINUE READING
