- Laing J, Manley Markowski R, Koval M, Civitelli R, Steinberg T. Connexin45 interacts with zonula occludens-1 in osteoblastic cells. Cell Commun Adhes. 2001;8:209-12 pubmed..Furthermore we found that ZO-1 could bind to peptides derived from the carboxyl terminal of Cx45 that had been covalently bound to an agarose resin. These data suggests that Cx45 and ZO-1 directly interact in ROS/Cx45 cells. ..
- Laing J, Chou B, Steinberg T. ZO-1 alters the plasma membrane localization and function of Cx43 in osteoblastic cells. J Cell Sci. 2005;118:2167-76 pubmed..They suggest that ZO-1-mediated delivery of Cx43 from a lipid raft domain to gap junctional plaques may be an important regulatory step in gap junction formation. ..
