Gap junctions, specialised membrane structures that mediate cell-to-cell communication in almost all tissues, are composed of channel-forming integral membrane proteins termed connexins. The activity of these intercellular channels is closely regulated, particularly by intramolecular modifications as phosphorylations of proteins by protein kinases, which appear to regulate the gap junction at several levels, including assembly of channels in the plasma membrane, connexin turnover as well as… CONTINUE READING
