On freeze-fracture replicas, gap junctions are frequently colocalized with tight junctions. In this study, to elucidate the relationship between gap- and tight-junction proteins, we investigated the localization of gap-junction proteins Cx32 and Cx26 and tight-junction proteins occludin, claudin-1, ZO-1, and ZO-2 in primary cultured rat hepatocytes, using confocal laser microscopy. In hepatocytes cultured in 2% DMSO and 10(-7) M glucagon medium, Cx32- but not Cx26-immunoreactive lines were… Expand
