Gap junction protein



Homo sapiens (Human)
Unreviewed - Annotation score: 2 out of 5- Protein inferred from homologyi
  1. Functioni

    One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell.UniRule annotation
