Astroglial networks promote neuronal coordination.
Paris, France. In Sci Signal, Dec 2015
Although the gap junction subunits connexin 30 and connexin 43 mediate the formation of extensive astroglial networks that cover large functional neuronal territories, their role in neuronal synchronization remains unknown.
Abnormal connexin expression in human chronic wounds.
Auckland, New Zealand. In Br J Dermatol, Nov 2015
RESULTS: Epidermal connexin 43, connexin 26 and connexin 30, and dermal connexin 43 were discovered to be strikingly upregulated in every ulcer from all three wound types, pointing to connexin upregulation as a common feature between chronic wounds.
