  • Function
    One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in GJB6 are the cause of ectodermal dysplasia type 2 (ED2) [MIM:129500]; also known as Clouston syndrome. Ectodermal dysplasia defines a heterogeneous group of disorders due to abnormal development of two or more ectodermal structures. ED2 is an autosomal dominant condition characterized by atrichosis, nail hypoplasia and deformities, hyperpigmentation of the skin, normal teeth, normal sweat and sebaceous gland function. Palmoplantar hyperkeratosis is a frequent features. Hearing impairment has been detected in few cases of ED2.
    Defects in GJB6 are the cause of deafness autosomal recessive type 1B (DFNB1B) [MIM:612645]. DFNB1B is a form of sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information.
    Defects in GJB6 are the cause of deafness autosomal dominant type 3B (DFNA3B) [MIM:612643].

  • Anti-GJB6 antibody (ab97428) at 1 µg/ml + Mouse Retina Tissue Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 30 kDa
    Observed band size: 28 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

    Exposure time: 8 minutes
  • ICC/IF image of ab97428 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab97428 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
