Unformatted text preview: β-Catenin and the Wnt signaling E-cadherin and cancer Desmosome Desmosome associated with hemidesmosome Tight junction Tight junction Occludins in tight junction Tight junctions prevent passage of large molecules Tight junction, polarity and transepithelial transport Gap junctions Gap junction Hexagonal cylindrical particles that compose pores connecting the cytoplasms of adjacent cells. Pore size: 1.2 nm in diameter Composed of connexins (vertebrate, 12 homo- or hetero- connexins per channel, 6 per cell), innexins (invertebrate), or pannexins (both) Allows molecules smaller than 1.2 kD to pass (ions, vitamins, signaling molecules, small peptides, etc.) Permeability can be regulated by pH, Ca2+ concentration and connexin phosphorylation. In heart, for example, Ca2+ diffusion through gap junctions is important for coordinate contraction Mutations in the connexin genes cause 8 human diseases, such as neurosensory deafness. Gap junctions...
