Species-specific voltage-gating properties of connexin-45 junctions expressed in Xenopus oocytes.

Abstract

Gap junctions composed of connexin-45 (Cx45) homologs from four species, zebrafish, chicken, mouse, and human, were expressed in pairs of Xenopus oocytes. The macroscopic conductance (gj) of all Cx45 junctions was modulated by transjunctional voltage (Vj) and by the inside-outside voltage (Vm), and the modulation was species specific. Although their gating… (More)
