Evaluation of the human genome suggests that all members of the connexin family of gap-junction proteins have now been… Expand Gap junctions (Gj) form conduits between adjacent cells that are composed of connexin (Cx) protein subunits and allow direct… Expand Members of the connexin gene family are integral membrane proteins that form hexamers called connexons. Most cells express two or… Expand All coelenterate fluorescent proteins cloned to date display some form of quaternary structure, including the weak tendency of… Expand Recombinant proteins containing tetracysteine tags can be successively labeled in living cells with different colors of… Expand Gap junctions are a unique type of intercellular junction found in most animal cell types. Gap junctions permit the intercellular… Expand Forced expression of gap junction proteins, connexins, enables gap junction-deficient cell lines to propagate intercellular… Expand Cells in tissues share ions, second messengers, and small metabolites through clusters of intercellular channels called gap… Expand Adjacent cells share ions, second messengers and small metabolites through intercellular channels which are present in gap… Expand We thank Nancy Kauler for her superb secretarial assistance. In addition, we are extremely grateful to Dr. Matthias Falk for his… Expand
