Functional characterization of a naturally occurring Cx50 truncation.


PURPOSE Lens connexins undergo proteolytic cleavage of their C termini during fiber maturation. Although the functional significance of this is unknown, cleavage has been correlated with changes in channel-gating properties. This study evaluates the functional consequences of this endogenous truncation by characterizing the properties of a C-terminal… (More)
