Term Information [More information on gap junction assembly]

Accession
GO:0016264
Name
gap junction assembly
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
Assembly of gap junctions, which are found in most animal tissues, and serve as direct connections between the cytoplasms of adjacent cells. They provide open channels through the plasma membrane, allowing ions and small molecules (less than approximately a thousand daltons) to diffuse freely between neighboring cells, but preventing the passage of proteins and nucleic acids.
