- Curtin K, Zhang Z, Wyman R. Drosophila has several genes for gap junction proteins. Gene. 1999;232:191-201 pubmed..This suggest that the Prp33 and Ogre proteins may join in forming heteromeric gap junction channels. ..
- Curtin K, Zhang Z, Wyman R. Gap junction proteins expressed during development are required for adult neural function in the Drosophila optic lamina. J Neurosci. 2002;22:7088-96 pubmed..Here we show that developmental gap junction genes can be required for normally functioning neural connections to form. ..
- Curtin K, Zhang Z, Wyman R. Gap junction proteins are not interchangeable in development of neural function in the Drosophila visual system. J Cell Sci. 2002;115:3379-88 pubmed..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. ..
