Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 April 2018).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: Connexins in cardiovascular disease
Interests: intercellular signalling; gap junctions; connexins; pannexins; skin disease/wound healing; calcium imaging
This Special Issue is related to the 18th biannual International Gap Junction Conference (IGJC2017), which will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow and hosted by Glasgow Caledonian University, 29 July–3 August, 2017. This Special Issue, entitled “Interplay of Connexins and Pannexins in Tissue Function and Disease”, will focus on six key state-of-the-art reviews, written by leads in the field on cutting edge topics and the latest developments in clinical trials in diverse organ systems. Original articles from delegates attending the meeting are also invited to celebrate 50 years of Gap Junction Research.
Topic will include:
- Connexin communication compartments in wound repair
- Connexins and pannexins in vascular function and disease
- Role of pannexins and connexins in the nervous system
- Pannexins and connexins in cancer
- The connexin interactome
- Connexins: post-translational modifications and trafficking
