- Drosophila has several genes for gap junction proteinsK D Curtin
Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Yale University, 266 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, CT 06511, USA
Gene 232:191-201. 1999..This suggest that the Prp33 and Ogre proteins may join in forming heteromeric gap junction channels...
- Gap junction proteins are not interchangeable in development of neural function in the Drosophila visual systemKathryn D Curtin
Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06511, USA
J Cell Sci 115:3379-88. 2002..Cells may couple only if their innexins can mate with each other. The partially overlapping expression patterns of several innexins make this 'mix and match' model of GJ formation a possibility...
- Gap junction proteins expressed during development are required for adult neural function in the Drosophila optic laminaKathryn D Curtin
Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut 06511, USA
J Neurosci 22:7088-96. 2002..Here we show that developmental gap junction genes can be required for normally functioning neural connections to form...
- Nested transcripts of gap junction gene have distinct expression patternsZ Zhang
Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, 610 KBT, Yale University, P O Box 208103, New Haven, Connecticut 06520, USA
J Neurobiol 40:288-301. 1999..Two other transcripts, shakB(N1) and shakB(N2), are expressed in the optic lamina but not elsewhere in the CNS. This expression pattern explains the neurophysiological and behavioral defects in escape exhibited in mutants of shakB...
- Basigin (EMMPRIN/CD147) interacts with integrin to affect cellular architectureKathryn D Curtin
Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06511, USA
J Cell Sci 118:2649-60. 2005..Basigin and integrin interact genetically to affect cell structure in the animal, possibly by forming complexes at cell contacts that help organize internal cell structure...
- Basigin/EMMPRIN/CD147 mediates neuron-glia interactions in the optic lamina of DrosophilaKathryn D Curtin
Department of Biological Sciences, 601 SCEN, Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72701, USA
Glia 55:1542-53. 2007..Basigin expression in photoreceptor neurons is required for normal structure and placement of glia cells...
