Gap junctions that allow for a direct exchange of second messenger and ions are the most conserved cellular structures in multicellular organisms. We have isolated and characterized a Bombyx mori gene innexin3 that encodes a new member of the innexin family required for the early embryonic development. The BmINX3 mRNA was 1,814 nucleotide residues in length, and the deduced amino acid sequence of BmInx3 shared 74% similarity with Apis melifera innexin3. The expression profile of the BmINX3 mRNA… CONTINUE READING
