Curtin K, Zhang Z, Wyman R. Drosophila has several genes for gap junction proteins. Gene. 1999;232:191-201
..This suggest that the Prp33 and Ogre proteins may join in forming heteromeric gap junction channels. ..
Curtin K, Zhang Z, Wyman R. Gap junction proteins expressed during development are required for adult neural function in the Drosophila optic lamina. J Neurosci. 2002;22:7088-96
..Here we show that developmental gap junction genes can be required for normally functioning neural connections to form. ..
Curtin K, Zhang Z, Wyman R. Gap junction proteins are not interchangeable in development of neural function in the Drosophila visual system. J Cell Sci. 2002;115:3379-88
..Cells may couple only if their innexins can mate with each other. The partially overlapping expression patterns of several innexins make this 'mix and match' model of GJ formation a possibility. ..
