Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The role of gap junction intercellular communication (GJIC) in both the healthy and injured lung was examined. GJIC was quantified based on transfer of Lucifer Yellow (LY) or on propagation of calcium transients between adjacent cells. Data were expressed as mean ±SEM.
