Connexin 43 connexon to gap junction transition is regulated by zonula occludens-1.
Connexin 43 (Cx43) is a gap junction (GJ) protein widely expressed in mammalian tissues that mediates cell-to-cell coupling. Intercellular channels comprising GJ aggregates form from docking of paired connexons, with one ...
Connexin 43 expression is associated with increased malignancy in prostate cancer cell lines and functions to promote migration.
Impaired expression of connexins, the gap junction subunits that facilitate direct cell-cell communication, have been implicated in prostate cancer growth. To elucidate the crucial role of connexins in prostate cancer ...
A novel frequency analysis method for assessing K(ir)2.1 and Na (v)1.5 currents.
Voltage clamping is an important tool for measuring individual currents from an electrically active cell. However, it is difficult to isolate individual currents without pharmacological or voltage inhibition. Herein, we ...
The effect of a connexin43-based Peptide on the healing of chronic venous leg ulcers: a multicenter, randomized trial.
The gap junction protein, connexin43 (Cx43), has critical roles in the inflammatory, edematous, and fibrotic processes following dermal injury and during wound healing, and is abnormally upregulated at the epidermal wound ...
Molecular structure and dimeric organization of the Notch extracellular domain as revealed by electron microscopy.
BACKGROUND: The Notch receptor links cell fate decisions of one cell to that of the immediate cellular neighbor. In humans, malfunction of Notch signaling results in diseases and congenital disorders. Structural information ...
