Growth/differentiation factor 5 (GDF5) regulates connexin expression and enhances embryonic chondrogenesis in a gap junction-dependent manner, suggesting that GDF5 action on developmental skeletogenesis is coordinated with gap junction activities. The results shown here demonstrate concordance between the mRNA expression profiles of GDF5 and the gap… CONTINUE READING
