This gene encodes a gap junction protein. The encoded protein, also known as a connexin, plays a role in formation of gap junctions, which provide direct connections between neighboring cells. Mutations in this gene have been reported to be associated with nonsyndromic hearing loss.

GJC3 has several biochemical functions, for example, protein homodimerization activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by GJC3 itself. We selected most functions GJC3 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with GJC3. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
