Long-chain n-alkanols and arachidonic acid interfere with the V m-sensitive gating mechanism of gap junction channels


 Experiments were carried out on preformed cell pairs and induced cell pairs of an insect cell line (mosquito Aedes albopictus, clone C6/36). The coupling conductance, g j, was determined with the dual voltage-clamp method. Exposure of preformed cell pairs to lipophilic agents, such as long-chain n-alkanols (n-hexanol, n-heptanol, n-octanol, n-nonanol, n… (More)
