Monotone dynamics of two cells dynamically coupled by a voltage-dependent gap junction.

Abstract

We introduce and analyse a simple model for two non-excitable cells that are dynamically coupled by a gap junction, a plaque of aqueous channels that electrically couple the cells. The gap junction channels have a low and high conductance state, and the transition rates between these states are voltage-dependent. We show that the number and stability of… (More)
