    Bioessays 23:388-96. 2001
    ..The completed genomic sequences for the fly and worm allow identification of the full complement of innexin genes in these two organisms and provide valuable resources for genetic analyses of gap junction function...

    P Phelan
    Sussex Centre for Neuroscience, School of Biological Sciences, University of Sussex, Brighton, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 16:1101-13. 1996
    ..The mutation shak-B2, which eliminates protein expression, prevents the establishment of dye coupling shaking-B, therefore, is essential for the assembly and/or maintenance of functional gap junctions at electrical synapses in the GFS...
