Gap Junction Channels and Hemichannels Hardback
Edited by Donglin Bai, Juan Carlos Saez
Part of the Methods in Signal Transduction Series series
Gap junction channels are a group of intercellular channels expressed in tissues and organs to synchronize many physiological processes.
A gap junction channel is formed by the docking of two hemichannels, and each hemichannel is a hexamer of connexins.
The field of gap junction channel and hemichannel research has recently exploded and became one of the most active areas of cell biology.
Numerous novel approaches and techniques have been developed, but there is no single book dedicated to the unique techniques and protocols employed for the research on these large pore channels.
This book fills the gap and focuses on protocols, approaches and reviews of gap junction channels and connexin hemichannels.
It will be a useful reference for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers.
Anyone with an interest in gap junction channels and hemichannels will need this summary of state-of-the-art techniques and protocols.
