Intercellular communication through gap junctions plays an important role in a variety of cellular processes including
homeostasis, morphogenesis, cell differentiation, and growth control. Gap junctions are transmembrane channels that
serve to directly link neighboring cells by mediating the exchange of low-MW <1200 kD metabolites, ions, and second messengers. Gap junctions are formed by the interaction of hemichannels (connexons) on adjacent cells. The
connexon itself is composed of a hexameric assembly of connexin proteins. Connexins are highly homologous proteins
encoded by a multigene family. The connexins exhibit similar structural features, which include a cytoplasmic amino terminal
region, four transmembrane domains, two extracellular loops, and a carboxy-terminal cytoplasmic tail of varying length.
