Signaling in Gap Junction The function of Gap Junctions in cell and tissue biology is of utmost importance as Gap-Junctional Intercellular Communication exists in nearly every mammalian cell types. http://www.sabiosciences.com/pathway.php?sn=Signaling_in_Gap_Junction

This photo displays three different types of cell junctions. 1. Desmosomes hold cells together (protein to protein). They can be found in heart, uterus, or skin cells. 2. Gap Junctions form links between all cells, allowing cytosol to connect. They are found in cardiac cells. 3. Tight junctions stop fluid and other stuff from passing between cells. They can be found in the urinary tract.

passief iontransport door kanaaltjes Gap Junctions are channels between cell membranes that allow ions and small molecules to pass directly from one cell to another. These channels are formed by membrane proteins called connexins. Six connexins in the cell membrane form a channel called a connexon. Connexons from two cells form a gap junction. Gap junctions permit electrical signals to pass directly from one cell to another.

cells that form the lens of the human eye are linked together via 'gap junctions' and the zipper-like rows of ball-&-socket joints lock long lines of these cells together.

Plasmodesmata Plasmodesmata (singular, plasmodesma) are small tubes that connect plant cells to each other, establishing living bridges between cells. Similar to the gap junction found in animal cells, the plasmodesmata penetrate both the primary and secondary cell walls, allowing certain molecules to pass directly from one cell to another.
