Fusion of myoblasts to form syncitial muscle cells results from a complex series of sequential events including cell alignment, cell adhesion and cell communication. The aim of the present investigation was to assess whether intercellular communication through gap junctions would be required for subsequent membrane fusion. The presence of the gap junction protein connexin 43 at areas of contact between prefusing rat L6 myoblasts was established by immunofluorescent staining. These myoblasts… CONTINUE READING
