• Official Full Name
  • gap junction protein, alpha 9, 59kDa
  • Background
  • Connexins, such as GJA9, are involved in the formation of gap junctions, intercellular conduits that directly connect the cytoplasms of contacting cells. Each gap junction channel is formed by docking of 2 hemichannels, each of which contains 6 connexin subunits (Sohl et al., 2003 (PubMed 12881038)).
