25771809 Complete loss of connexin32 function is sufficient to produce central nervous system dysfunction with clinical manifestations.
25595958 A novel point mutation in GJB1 was detected, expanding the spectrum of GJB1 mutations known to be associated with CMTX.
25548281 findings suggest that the cytoplasmic tail of Cx32 may be involved in regulating the permeability of gap junctions by regulating their size.
25524707 Transgenic expression of hCx32 in Cx32/Cx47dKO mice resulted in almost complete rescue of behavioral abnormalities in a hypomyelinating leukodystrophy model.
25270527 This study reveals for the first time that Cx43 and Cx32 are down-regulated in keratocystic odontogenic tumours
25206281 Cx32 and Cx43 mRNA expression decreased gradually during H. pylori infection-associated gastric carcinogenesis, and it is associated with hypermethylation of these genes' promoter.
25171777 Blockade of endothelial Cx32 increased tissue factor expression induced by TNF-alpha stimulation and cell-cell interaction via ICAM1. Direct Cx32-mediated interaction modulates TF expression in ECs during vascular inflammation.
24819634 No mutations were found in GJB1 in a cohort of 38 Italian CMT2 patients.
24768312 This study reported four novel mutations, c.191G > A, c.508G > T, c.778A > G and c.300C > G of GJB1 in four Greek families with variable clinical features and mild clinical CNS manifestations in three of them.
24333598 Eendothelial Cx32 positively regulates angiogenesis by enhancing endothelial cell tube formation and cell migration.
