- Schalper K, Palacios Prado N, Retamal M, Shoji K, Martinez A, Saez J. Connexin hemichannel composition determines the FGF-1-induced membrane permeability and free [Ca2+]i responses. Mol Biol Cell. 2008;19:3501-13 pubmed publisher..The cell density of Cx26 and Cx43 HeLa transfectants cultured in serum-free medium was differentially affected by FGF-1. Thus, the FGF-1-induced cell permeabilization and derived consequences depend on the Cx composition of HCs. ..
