Gap junction protein, beta 5

Cx31.1, connexin31.1, GJB5
Gap junctions are conduits that allow the direct cell-to-cell passage of small cytoplasmic molecules, including ions, metabolic intermediates, and second messengers, and thereby mediate intercellular metabolic and electrical communication. Gap junction channels consist of connexin protein subunits, which are encoded by a multigene family.[supplied by OMIM, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Hagedorn et al., Little Rock, United States. In Plos One, 2013
Marked increased expression of MUC17, the cell junction protein genes VSIG1 and GJB5, and the antiapoptotic gene REG4 were found in SSA/Ps, relative to controls and adenomas, were verified by qPCR analysis of additional SSA/Ps (n = 21) and adenomas (n = 10).
Cx31.1 acts as a tumour suppressor in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines through inhibition of cell proliferation and metastasis.
GeneRIF
Huang et al., Shanghai, China. In J Cell Mol Med, 2012
Overexpression of Cx31.1 in H1299 cells reduced cell proliferation, delayed the G1 phase, inhibited anchorage-independent growth, and suppressed cell migration and invasion. Xenografts of Cx31.1 overexpressing H1299 cells had reduced tumourigenicity.

Review
Winterhager et al., Toronto, Canada. In Placenta, 2008
Connexin gene deletion in mice has shown that Cx26 is responsible for transplacental uptake of glucose in the labyrinth, and Cx31 as well as Cx31.1 for trophoblast cell lineage development.
Connexin31.1 deficiency in the mouse impairs object memory and modulates open-field exploration, acetylcholine esterase levels in the striatum, and cAMP response element-binding protein levels in the striatum and piriform cortex.
