To analyze the molecular basis of gap junctional communication in mouse retina, we examined the expression pattern of the following 13 connexin (Cx) genes: Cx26, Cx30, Cx30.3, Cx31, Cx31.1, Cx32, Cx36, Cx37, Cx40, Cx43, Cx45, Cx46, and Cx50. By using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reactions with primer oligonucleotides to murine connexin genes, we detected mRNAs of Cx26, Cx31, Cx32, Cx36, Cx37, Cx40, Cx43, Cx45, and Cx50. Retinae from heterozygous mice with targeted replacement of most… CONTINUE READING
