2009) The diverse functional roles and regulation of neuronal gap junctions
in the retina.
Functional gap junctions
in the schwann cell myelin sheath.
For these reasons, all anti-apoptotic treatment modalities such as a Ca-sensitiserinotropic agent levosimendan, caspase and/or Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibition, inhibition of Bax using antisense technology, adenine nucleotide transporter (ANT) antibodies, gap junction
and microtubule inhibitors in the treatment of myocardial ischaemia/ reperfusion injury can individually exert beneficial therapeutic effects.
11) Additionally, in rabbit, the communication through gap junctions
early in IL-1P signal transduction is critical to the process of cytokine-regulated secretion of metalloproteinases by synovial cells.
Downregulation of immunodetectable connexin43 and decreased gap junction
size in the pathogenesis of chronic hibernation in the human left ventricle," Circulation, vol.
At the cumulus cells, MAPK activity is likely to trigger the expression of Meiosis Activating Sterol [MAS] from cumulus to oocyte through gap junctions
and will induce MPF.
formation in myometrium; Control by estrogens progesterone and prostaglandins.
Notwithstanding the undisputed importance of the synaptic connections and their assisted delivery of messages from the splanhnic nerve to the adrenal chromaffine cells, the gap junction
mediating communication serves as an ideal structure to promote intercellular connections in the adrenal medulla.
That was the main finding: We do get very good electrical coupling, which we call functional gap junction
in the brain; physiological and pathological roles.
13 Gap junctions
are particularly important to your skin because it is highly dependent upon intercellular communication for vital metabolic processes related to growth and reproduction.
In ovaries, connexin 43 (Cx43), encoded by Gja1, has been found to be the main connexin expressed in developing follicles forming the gap junctions
coupling granulosa cells (20-23).
