Gene Snapshot
Innexin 3 (Inx3) is a gap junction protein that can form heteromeric gap junction channels via interaction with Inx2. Loss of Inx3 leads to the destabilization of ogre, Inx2 and shg at the plasma membrane, suggesting that these four proteins form a complex. [Date last reviewed: 2016-08-25]

INNEXINS -
Gap junctions are intercellular channels that link the cytoplasm of neighboring cells facilitating cell-cell communication. In non-chordates they are composed of innexins. Innexins are four transmembrane proteins that assemble into hexamers around a central channel. The association of hemichannels on adjacent membranes forms the gap junction which allows the direct passage of ions and small molecules. Gap junctions may be formed from homo- or heteromultimers. (Adapted from FBrf0219962).
UniProt Contributed Function Data
Structural components of the gap junctions. Essential for proper epithelial development of the epidermis.
