Protein

Gap junction gamma-2 protein

Gene

Gjc2

Organism
Mus musculus (Mouse)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 5 out of 5- Experimental evidence at protein leveli

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. May play a role in myelination in central and peripheral nervous systems.2 Publications

Pathology & Biotechi

Disruption phenotypei

Mice display myelination abnormalities characterized by extracellular vacuolation along nerve fibers. Mice lacking both Gja12 and Gjb1 display a more severe demyelination phenotype associated with oligodendrocyte death. These mice develop action tremors, tonic seizures, sporadic convulsions and loss of consciousness preceding death in the sixth week after birth.2 Publications
