    ..Thus, the Cx47 mutants associated with PMLD likely disrupt the gap junction coupling between astrocytes and oligodendrocytes...

    J Neurosci 27:13949-57. 2007
    ..Finally, Cx47 mutants that cause Pelizaeus-Merzbacher-like disease do not efficiently form functional channels with Cx43, indicating that disrupted Cx47/Cx43 channels cause this disease...

    Jennifer L Orthmann-Murphy
    Department of Neurology, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, USA
    J Mol Neurosci 35:101-16. 2008
    ..Mutations of these connexin genes demonstrate that the proper functioning of myelin and oligodendrocytes requires the expression of these connexins. The physiological function of O/A and A/A junctions, however, remains to be illuminated...

    Brain 132:426-38. 2009
    ..Thus, GJA12/GJC2 mutations can result in a milder phenotype than previously appreciated, but whether I33M retains a function of Cx47 not directly related to forming functional gap junction channels is not known...
