    Gap junction networks in mushroom bodies participate in visual learning and memory in Drosophila

    Qingqing Liu et al.
    Gap junctions exist in Kenyon cells and Kenyon cell-mushroom body output neuron neural networks, and are also critical in visual learning and memory in Drosophila.

    Epidermal cell turnover across tight junctions based on Kelvin's tetrakaidecahedron cell shape

    Mariko Yokouchi et al.
    The three dimensional structure of epidermal cells in the stratum granulosum provides the basis for the homeostasis of the tight junction barrier during cell turnover in the skin.

    The exon junction complex regulates the splicing of cell polarity gene dlg1 to control Wingless signaling in development

    Min Liu et al.
    The exon junction complex regulates the cell polarity determinant Discs large 1, which acts independently from its role in cell polarity to protect Dishevelled protein from lysosomal degradation in Wingless/Wnt signaling.

    Regulation of neuronal axon specification by glia-neuron gap junctions in C. elegans

    Lingfeng Meng et al.
    Genetic study of C. elegans neural development reveals the function of glia-neuron gap junctions in neuronal axon specification, and shows that glial cells regulate neuronal intracellular pathways through gap junctions.

    Tight junction protein occludin regulates progenitor Self-Renewal and survival in developing cortex

    Raphael M Bendriem et al.
    That early cortical neural progenitor divisions strictly require OCLN isoform expression is a paradigm shift in the functional consideration of this protein best known for promoting between-cell barrier functions.

    Myosin II isoforms play distinct roles in adherens junction biogenesis

    Mélina L Heuzé et al.
    Myosin isoforms exhibit different functions in the formation of adherens junctions and the transmission of mechanical forces.

    Mouse rods signal through gap junctions with cones

    Sabrina Asteriti et al.
    Electrophysiological recordings show that cones in the eyes of mice are able to receive strong input from rods via gap junctions, supporting the view that this route plays an important role in vision.

    Tight Junction Protein 1a regulates pigment cell organisation during zebrafish colour patterning

    Andrey Fadeev et al.
    The changes in shape of iridophores that underlie adult colour pattern formation in zebrafish depend on the levels of Tight Junction Protein 1a in these cells.

    Non-canonical Wnt signaling regulates junctional mechanocoupling during angiogenic collective cell migration

    Joana R Carvalho et al.
    Analysis of axial polarity distributions shows that Wnt5a regulates collective cell migration in vivo by stabilizing vinculin at adherens junctions and fine-tuning mechanocoupling between neighbouring cells.
