Defects in the germ line and gonads of mice lacking connexin43.

Abstract

The connexins are a family of at least 15 proteins that form the intercellular membrane channels of gap junctions. Numerous connexins, including connexin43 (Cx43), have been implicated in reproductive processes by virtue of their expression in adult gonads. In the present study, we examined the gonads of fetal and neonatal mice homozygous for a null… (More)
