Gap junction protein, delta 3, 31.9kDa

Cx30.2, Cx31.9, connexin 30.2, mCx30.2, hCx31.9, GJA11
This gene is a member of the large family of connexins that are required for the formation of gap junctions. Six connexin monomers form a hemichannel, or connexon, on the cell surface. This connexon can interact with a connexon from a neighboring cell, thus forming a channel linking the cytoplasm of the 2 cells. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

High glucose-induced downregulation of connexin 30.2 promotes retinal vascular lesions: implications for diabetic retinopathy.
Roy et al., Boston, United States. In Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci, 2013
PURPOSE: To investigate whether high glucose (HG) alters expression of connexin 30.2 (Cx30.2) and influences gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC) in retinal endothelial cells and promotes vascular lesions characteristic of diabetic retinopathy (DR).
Connexin45 provides optimal atrioventricular nodal conduction in the adult mouse heart.
Schrickel et al., Bonn, Germany. In Circ Res, 2013
In addition, the Cx30.2 protein that is coexpressed with Cx45 in the cardiac conduction system was posttranscriptionally reduced by 70% in mutant hearts.

Weiler et al., Oldenburg, Germany. In Vis Neurosci, 2010
The data of this stiudy provided evidence that coupling of RG A1 cells to displaced amacrine cells is mediated by Cx30.2 and that the extent of this coupling is modulated by protein kinase C.
Cx30.2 enhancer analysis identifies Gata4 as a novel regulator of atrioventricular delay.
Olson et al., Dallas, United States. In Development, 2009
A distal enhancer for the connexin 30.2 (Cx30.2, also known as Gjd3) gene required for normal atrioventricular (AV) delay in mice, is necessary and sufficient to direct expression to the developing AV conduction system, which is alos dependent on Gata4.

Willecke et al., Bonn, Germany. In J Mol Cell Cardiol, 2009
Cx30.2 and Cx40 act as counterparts in the AV-node and His-bundle, decreasing or increasing, respectively, electrical coupling and conduction velocity in these areas.
Human connexin31.9, unlike its orthologous protein connexin30.2 in the mouse, is not detectable in the human cardiac conduction system.
Willecke et al., Bonn, Germany. In J Mol Cell Cardiol, 2009
Cx31.9 protein, unlike its counterpart in the mouse, is not expressed in detectable quantities and is thus unlikely to contribute to the impulse generation and conduction system or the working myocardium of the human heart.

Bukauskas et al., Bonn, Germany. In Trends Cardiovasc Med, 2006
Cx30.2 and its putative human ortholog, Cx31.9, under physiologic conditions form unapposed hemichannels in nonjunctional plasma membrane; these hemichannels have a conductance of approximately 20 pS and are permeable to cationic dyes up to approximately 400 Da in molecular mass.

Consistent with this, in the center of the SAN there is no expression of Cx43 (the principal connexin of the working myocardium) and little expression of Cx40, but there is expression of Cx45 and Cx30.2, whereas in the periphery of the SAN Cx43 as well Cx45 is expressed.
