The present study examined the distributions of connexin43 mRNA and connexin32 mRNA in the central nervous system (CNS) of the rat by using in situ hybridization histochemistry. These connexins are the best studied gap junction proteins; connexin32 forms direct cell-cell channels in the liver, as does connexin43 in the heart. There was a differential distribution of cells containing connexin32 mRNA compared with the population of cells which contained connexin43 mRNA, thus implying a regional… CONTINUE READING
