    J Cell Sci 115:3379-88. 2002
    ..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...

    Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut 06511, USA
    J Neurosci 22:7088-96. 2002

    J Neurobiol 40:288-301. 1999
    ..Two other transcripts, shakB(N1) and shakB(N2), are expressed in the optic lamina but not elsewhere in the CNS. This expression pattern explains the neurophysiological and behavioral defects in escape exhibited in mutants of shakB...
