Heme oxygenase-1 protects corexit 9500A-induced respiratory epithelial injury across species.
Birmingham, United States. In Plos One, 2014
The expression of the intercellular junctional proteins, such as tight junction proteins occludin, zonula occludens (ZO-1), ZO-2 and adherens junctional proteins E-cadherin and Focal Adhesion Kinase (FAK), were remarkably inhibited by CE, suggesting that these proteins are involved in CE-induced increased permeability and subsequent apoptosis.

Salzburg, Austria. In Tissue Barriers, 2013
Zonula occludens proteins (ZO-1, ZO-2, ZO-3), which belong to the family of membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) homologs, serve as molecular hubs for the assembly of multi-protein networks at the cytoplasmic surface of intercellular contacts in epithelial and endothelial cells.
ZO proteins and redox-dependent processes.
Mexico. In Antioxid Redox Signal, 2011
SIGNIFICANCE: ZO-1, ZO-2, and ZO-3 are scaffold proteins of the tight junction (TJ) that belong to the MAGUK protein family characterized for exhibiting PDZ, SH3, and GuK domains.
