  1. Figueroa X, Duling B. Dissection of two Cx37-independent conducted vasodilator mechanisms by deletion of Cx40: electrotonic versus regenerative conduction. Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol. 2008;295:H2001-7 pubmed publisher
    ..Connexin40 is essential for the ACh-activated regenerative vasodilator mechanism. However, neither connexin40 nor connexin37 is indispensable for the electrotonic spread of hyperpolarizing signals. ..
  2. Figueroa X, Duling B. Gap junctions in the control of vascular function. Antioxid Redox Signal. 2009;11:251-66 pubmed publisher
    ..In this review, we discuss the participation of connexin-based channels in the control of vascular function in physiologic and pathologic conditions, with a special emphasis on hypertension and diabetes. ..
  3. Figueroa X, Lillo M, Gaete P, Riquelme M, Saez J. Diffusion of nitric oxide across cell membranes of the vascular wall requires specific connexin-based channels. Neuropharmacology. 2013;75:471-8 pubmed publisher
    ..This article is part of the Special Issue Section entitled 'Current Pharmacology of Gap Junction Channels and Hemichannels'...
  4. Begandt D, Good M, Keller A, DeLalio L, Rowley C, Isakson B, et al. Pannexin channel and connexin hemichannel expression in vascular function and inflammation. BMC Cell Biol. 2017;18:2 pubmed publisher
    ..In addition, this review will touch on recent evidence implicating a role for these proteins in regulating red blood cell and platelet function. ..
  5. Lillo M, Gaete P, Puebla M, Ardiles N, Poblete I, Becerra A, et al. Critical contribution of Na+-Ca2+ exchanger to the Ca2+-mediated vasodilation activated in endothelial cells of resistance arteries. FASEB J. 2017;: pubmed publisher
