Membrane channel connexin (Cx) forms gap junctions that are implicated in the homeostatic regulation of multicellular systems; thus, hematopoietic cells were assumed not to express Cxs. However, hematopoietic progenitors organize a multicellular system during the primitive stage; thus, the aim of the present study was to determine whether Cx32, a member of the Cx family, may function during the primitive steady-state hematopoiesis in the bone marrow (BM). First, the numbers of mononuclear cells… CONTINUE READING
