Functional Analysis of Connexin Channels in Cultured Cells by Neurobiotin Injection and Visualization
Authors:  Philipp Wörsdörfer and Klaus Willecke, date: 06/05/2017, view: 7323, Q&A: 0
Functional gap junction channels between neighboring cells can be assessed by microinjection of low molecular weight tracer substances into cultured cells. The extent of direct intercellular communication can be precisely quantified by this method. ...
