Table 1 Statistical amounts of hemichannels and gap junction channels in the case of 2 co-expressed connexins

From: Cardiac Cx43, Cx40 and Cx45 co-assembling: involvement of connexins epitopes in formation of hemichannels and Gap junction channels

  Double co-expression of Connexins
Hemichannels Gap junction channels
  2 homomeric
12 heteromeric
2 homomeric-homotypic
1 homomeric-heterotypic
24 heteromeric-homotypic
168 heteromeric-heterotypic
Total 14 195
  1. These amounts consider that each association is possible independently on the connexin composition of hemichannels, and are indicated without considering that each channel can be in 2 different orientations
