  1. Liu X, Petit J, Ezan P, Gyger J, Magistretti P, Giaume C. The psychostimulant modafinil enhances gap junctional communication in cortical astrocytes. Neuropharmacology. 2013;75:533-8 pubmed publisher
    ..This article is part of the Special Issue Section entitled 'Current Pharmacology of Gap Junction Channels and Hemichannels'. ..
  2. Giaume C, Theis M. Pharmacological and genetic approaches to study connexin-mediated channels in glial cells of the central nervous system. Brain Res Rev. 2010;63:160-76 pubmed publisher
    ..We outline new avenues not only to study specific mechanisms by which connexins exert these functions but also to selectively investigate well-defined coupling compartments among glial networks. ..
  3. Meunier C, Wang N, Yi C, Dallérac G, Ezan P, Koulakoff A, et al. Contribution of Astroglial Cx43 Hemichannels to the Modulation of Glutamatergic Currents by D-Serine in the Mouse Prefrontal Cortex. J Neurosci. 2017;37:9064-9075 pubmed publisher
    ..These observations may be particularly relevant in the PFC, where D-serine and its converting enzyme are highly expressed. ..
