Connexins in lymphatic vessel physiology and disease.
 

Author(s): Merlijn J Meens, Amélie Sabine, Tatiana V Petrova, Brenda R Kwak

Journal: FEBS Lett.. 2014 Apr;588(8):1271-7.

 

Connexins are transmembrane proteins that form gap junction- and hemi-channels. Once inserted into the membrane, hemi-channels (connexons) allow for diffusion of ions and small molecules (<1 kDa) between the extracellular space and the cytosol. Gap junction channels allow diffusion ...
