  1. Schalper K, Palacios Prado N, Retamal M, Shoji K, Martinez A, Saez J. Connexin hemichannel composition determines the FGF-1-induced membrane permeability and free [Ca2+]i responses. Mol Biol Cell. 2008;19:3501-13 pubmed publisher
    ..The cell density of Cx26 and Cx43 HeLa transfectants cultured in serum-free medium was differentially affected by FGF-1. Thus, the FGF-1-induced cell permeabilization and derived consequences depend on the Cx composition of HCs. ..
  2. Schalper K, Sánchez H, Lee S, Altenberg G, Nathanson M, Saez J. Connexin 43 hemichannels mediate the Ca2+ influx induced by extracellular alkalinization. Am J Physiol Cell Physiol. 2010;299:C1504-15 pubmed publisher
    ..These studies identify a membrane pathway for Ca(2+) influx and provide a potential explanation for the activation of cellular events induced by extracellular alkalinization. ..
