Monoclonal Mouse Highly Purified E B IP IF
Gap junctions are specialized structures formed between plasma membranes of adjacent cells that play important roles in coupling chemical and electrical activity in nearly all tissue types and early vertebrate embryos. Within gap junctions numerous proteinaceous gap junction channels, approximately 1.5nm in diameter, provide an aqueous route for the free passage of inorganic ions and small molecules (<1200D) between cell cytoplasms. These channels allow for the ef cient propagation of electrical signals and the transmission of signals carried by small regulatory molecules such as cAMP. Gap junction channels form from two opposing hemichannels, or connexons, on adjacent cells. Each connexon is comprised of a ring of six identical protein subunits, termed connexins. Connexin proteins themselves form a large multigene family. To date at least twelve highly homologous, but distinct connexin genes have been identi ed in vertebrates, each with its own distinctive, though sometimes overlapping, tissue distribution. Regions of sequence divergence, including the cytoplasmic tail, are thought to mediate connexin type-speci c properties including phosphorylation, response to gating stimuli, and membrane turnover.

Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
