. Connexins 40 and 43 are differentially regulated within the kidneys of rats with renovascular hypertension. Kidney Int. 2001;60:190-201 pubmed
..Cell-to-cell communication mediated by Cx40 may be implicated in the function of renin-secreting cells, hence participating in the control of blood pressure. ..

. Connexins 43 and 26 are differentially increased after rat bladder outlet obstruction. Exp Cell Res. 2002;274:216-25 pubmed
..The data show that Cx43 and Cx26 are differentially regulated during bladder outlet obstruction and contribute to the response of the bladder wall to increased voiding pressure, possibly to control its elasticity. ..
