Communicating Junctions - Gap Junctions

Communicating Junctions - Gap Junctions

Gap Junction (nexus): a specialized intercellular connection between a multitude of animal cell-types; directly connects the cytoplasm of 2 cells, which allows various molecules and ions  to pass freely between cells; one gap junction channel is composed of two connexons (hemichannels) which connect across the intercellular space; gap junctions are analogous to the plasmodesmata that join plant cells

Gap Junctions are channels between cell membranes that allow ions and small molecules to pass directly from one cell to another. These channels are formed by membrane proteins called connexins. Six connexins in the cell membrane form a channel called a connexon. Connexons from two cells form a gap junction. Gap junctions permit electrical signals to pass directly from one cell to another.
