Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IF
Tight junctions act as both the barrier (or gate) and the fence between neighboring cells. The barrier function of tight junctions regulates the passage of ions, water, and various macromolecules through paracellular spaces. The fence function maintains cell polarity, thus, tight junctions work as a fence to prevent intermixing of molecules in the apical membrane with
those in the lateral membrane. Tight junctions are comprised of the membrane proteins occludin, claudins, and JAMs. Claudins are responsible for the formation of tight junction strands and are connected with the actin cytoskeleton by ZO-1.1 Claudin-8 is a tight junction protein expressed in several distal nephron segments, suggesting that it may have a role as a
paracellular cation barrier protein.2-4 Claudin-8 is found in the inner ear and the umbrella cell tight junctions in the bladder epithelium
