Description

Gap junctions are present in the juxtaglomerular apparatus enabling intercellular communication. Our study determined the location of different connexin subtypes within the juxtaglomerular apparatus of the rat, and the role of these subtypes in renal hemodynamics through the use of specific mimetic peptides. Immunohistochemical analysis showed connexins 37 and 40 expression in the endothelial and renin-secreting cells of the afferent arteriole, while connexin 40 was also found in extra- and...[Show more]
