By use of site-specific antibodies against synthetic oligopeptides, we examined the localizations of the gap junction proteins connexin 32 (Cx32) and connexin 26 (Cx26) in rat and guinea pig liver. Double-labeling immunofluorescence microscopy revealed that in guinea pig liver both proteins were spread throughout the liver lobules and seemed to localize together within the same gap junction plaque. In rat liver, co-localization of both Cx32 and Cx26 in the same plaques was also suggested in… CONTINUE READING
