Barriers and channels formed by tight junction proteins 1.

Ed. by Michael Fromm and Jorg-Dieter Schulzke.



206 pages


Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences; v.1257


The focus of this issue is the tight junction, which connects neighboring epithelial or endothelial cells. The 23 papers cover molecular properties of the tight junction; regulation of the tight junction and barrier function; and tight junctions in skin, lung, endothelia, and nervous tissues. Specific topics include charge-selective claudin channels, dynamic properties of the tight junction barrier, the regulation of tight junction in human normal pancreatic duct epithelial cells and cancer cells, diverse types of junctions containing tight junction proteins in stratified mammalian epithelia, and the involvement of claudins in zebrafish brain ventricle morphogenesis.
