Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IH IC
Ductin is the major core component of gap junctions and recent structural data shows it to be a four alpha-helical bundle which fits particularly well into a low resolution model of the gap junction channel. Ductin is also the main membrane component of the vacuolar H+-ATPase that is found in all eukaryotes and it seems likely that the gap junction channel first evolved as a housing for the rotating spindle of these proton pumps. Because ductin protrudes little from the membrane, other proteins are required to bring cell surfaces close enough together to form gap junctions. Such proteins may include connexins, a large family of proteins found in vertebrates.
