We have previously shown that gap junctions and gap junction-associated protein connexin 43 are present in the human and baboon corpus luteum. Abundant expression of connexin 43 is seen in the midluteal phase corpora lutea. Since the formation of gap junctions requires the presence of adherens junctions formed by the cadherins, our aim in these studies was 1) to immunocytochemically localize E-cadherin and the associated proteins, beta-catenin and gamma-catenin (plakoglobin), in the baboon… CONTINUE READING
