23179405 Although p.R15G and p.L23H mutants do not decrease the trafficking of CX proteins, mutations in GJC3 genes result in a loss of hemichannel function of CX30.2/CX31.3 protein, possibly causing hearing loss.
21480002 The connexin30.2/CX31.3 shares functional properties with pannexin (hemi) channels rather than gap junction channels of other Connexins.
20632892 Mutations in the Cx29 gene do not play a role in the causation of non syndromic hearing impairment in Indian population.

19876648 Data show that the p.E269D missense mutation resulted in accumulation of the Cx29 mutant protein in the endoplasmic reticulum rather than in the cytoplasmic membrane.
19657183 We suggest that the c.[43C-->G(+)230G-->C] compound heterozygous variant of Cx29 may be a risk factor for the development of hearing loss in Taiwanese.
18353664 Cx31.3 is localized to the gray matter along small myelinated fibers and is co-expressed with Cx32 in oligodendrocytes.
