    ..Taken together, these results suggest that the P to S mutation at amino acid residue 88 causes a defect that leads to decreased degradation and subsequent accumulation of hCx50P88S in a cellular structure different from aggresomes. ..

    ..Dominantly inherited cataracts may result from effects of the connexin mutant on its wild type isotype, the other co-expressed wild type connexin and/or its interaction with other cellular components. ..

    ..In this review, we summarize the current knowledge about connexin and gap junction degradation including the signals and protein-protein interactions that participate in their targeting for degradation. ..

    ..These results suggest that although Cx23 expression can influence the abundance of the co-expressed lens fiber connexins, heterozygous or homozygous expression of a Cx23-null allele does not alter lens transparency...
