GeneDescription Connexins, or gap junction proteins, are a family of structurally-related transmembrane proteins that assemble to form vertebrate gap junctions. Each gap junction is composed of two hemichannels, or connexons, which are themselves each constructed out of six connexin molecules. Gap junctions are essential for many physiological processes, such as the coordinated depolarization of cardiac muscle, and proper embryonic development.
GeneFunction McLachlan et al.(2003) injected zebrafish cx35 RNA into paired xenopus oocyte to study the function of cx35.It was found that injection elicited intercellular electrical coupling with weak voltage senestivity.With the help of northern analysis and RT-PCR the cx 35 was first seen to be detectable 2 dpf and in adult the expression was found in brain and retina. They also studied the protein expression by sacrificing the zebrafish and collecting tissue sample from retina, whole eye (excluding lens), liver and brain. These tissues were homogenized and proteins were extracted and then ith the help of immunohistochemical techniques and western bloting a 35-36kDa band was recognized in zebrafish brain, retina and whole eye samples.
GeneCloning McLachlan et al. (2003) cloned Zebrafish Cx35 with a P1 Artificial Chromosome (PAC) library. Injection of the zebrafish Cx35 RNA into paired xenopus oocyte elicited intercellular electrical coupling with weak voltage sensitivity. It was seen that in an adult CX35 is expressed in brain and retina.
