26485405 Genetic variants in ZC3H11B, RSPO1, and GJD2 are associated with susceptibility to the development of high myopia in a Han Chinese population.
26226778 It was shown that the decreased level of the examined neuronal proteins was accompanied by the impaired coexpression of synaptophysin/neurofilaments and Cx36 in the series of astrocytomas--anaplastic astrocytomas--glioblastomas.
23834555 In this study, there was no association of the analyzed SNPs located in RASGRF1. GJD2, and ACTC1 with pathological myopia.
23756480 Three SNP alleles in BRD2, Cx-36, and ME2 and microdeletions in 15q13.3, 15q11.2, and 16p13.11 also contribute risk to juvenile myclonic epilepsy.
22752717 Cx36 GJs are highly cation-selective and should exhibit relatively low permeability to numerous vital negatively charged metabolites and high permeability to potassium ion, a major charge carrier in cell-cell communication.
22288100 A polymorphism of Cx36 gene is associated to certain forms of human diabetes
20979653 connexin genes Gjd2 coding for mCx36, Gjc1 coding for mCx45 and Gja10 coding for mCx57 in the mouse, a subset of 4 connexin genes, including the unique GJA9 (Cx59) and GJA10 (Cx62), could be detected at least as transcript isoforms in the human retina.
20835239 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20835239 Variations in GJD2 is associated with refractive errors and myopia.
19418635 ZO-2 may serve to anchor regulatory proteins at gap junctions composed of Cx36.
