Hyperthermia induces upregulation of connexin43 in the golden hamster neural tube.


BACKGROUND During early embryonic development, maternal exposure to hyperthermia induces neural tube defects (NTDs). Connexins are essential for the formation of gap junctions and Connexin43 (Cx43) is crucially involved in neural tube development. This study was designed to explore the potential role of Cx43 in NTDs induced by hyperthermia. METHODS Using… (More)
