    Objectives: M cells have been described in many mammalian species. They are thought to be relevant for the genesis of long QT intervals, afterdepolarizations and for dispersion in action potential duration and in repolarization time. Their role in the human heart is subject to debate. Methods:...

    While the role played by astrocytes in synaptic transmission has now largely been documented, their contribution to network activities only starts to be appreciated. A typical feature of astrocytes is their high rate of connexin expression (Cx43 and Cx30), the molecular basis for gap junctional...

    Intercellular channels or gap junctions (GJ) are formed by connexin (Cx) proteins, transmembrane proteins that play a pivotal role in the direct movement of ions and larger cytoplasmic solutes between vascular endothelial cells (EC), between vascular smooth muscle cells (SMC), and between...

    Gap junctions are present at the coupling of different cell types within the urinary bladder [1]. Detrusor, the smooth muscle of the bladder, displays contractile phasic activity (PA) during urine storage. This PA could be facilitated by cell-to-cell communication e.g. via gap junctions....

    Ventricular arrhythmias are initiated by abnormal action potential (AP) conduction partially caused by an increased gap junction (GJ) resistivity (Rj). Alterations in ventricular GJ electrical properties may result from either raised [Ca2+]i and/or changes in the phosphorylation state of GJ...

    In an earlier study, we suggested that adaptive gap junctions (GJs) might be a basis of cardiac memory, a phenomenon which refers to persistent electrophysiological response of the heart to external pacing. Later, it was also shown that the proposed mechanism of adaptation of GJs is consistent...

    Gap junctions form the cell-to-cell pathways for propagation of the precisely orchestrated patterns of current flow that govern the regular rhythm of the healthy heart. As in most tissues and organs, multiple connexin types are expressed in the heart: connexin43 (Cx43), Cx40 and Cx45 are found...
