Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: Gap Junction Structure and Chemical Regulation: Direct Calmodulin Role in Cell-to-Cell Channel Gating describes and discusses the findings of major studies conducted during the past century on the structure and chemical regulation of direct cell-to-cell communication via gap junction channels. Chapters bring together important findings on direct cell communication, from its history, to its structure and regulation. These channels are essential for normal organ function, and mutations in their protein (connexin) cause various diseases. The book is useful for established investigators who need a review on the field and young investigators who need a thorough resource for study and comprehension. Contains comprehensive, historical coverage on direct cell-to-cell communication Provides detailed coverage of gap junction channel structure and regulation, with extensive coverage of the direct role of calmodulin in channel gating Delivers a thorough description of models proposed for the chemical gating of gap junction channels

Summary : ABSTRACTGap junctions are aggregates of intercellular channels each formed of protein subunits termed connexins (Cx). Recently published data show that junctional dye permeability relative to conductance (permselectivity) varies across several orders of magnitude for Cx43 junctions, suggesting variable selectivity of the comprising Cx43 channels. Logical candidates for this variable selectivity ...

Summary : Gap junction channels are a group of intercellular channels expressed in tissues and organs to synchronize many physiological processes. A gap junction channel is formed by the docking of two hemichannels, and each hemichannel is a hexamer of connexins. The field of gap junction channel and hemichannel research has recently ...

Summary : In the approach to the analysis of disease, including, of course, cancer, two major thrusts may be distinguished. These may be referred to, in shorthand, as agents and processes: the causative agents (chemical, microbial, physical, environmental, and psychosocial) and the organismic processes, initiated and furthered by the agents, culminating in ...
