Hi all,

modulation of gap junctions is one function calcium is supposed to have
as a second messenger. I can hardly find original articles that
experimentally prove this, especially in the nervous system. I would be
very grateful if anyone could provide references which show that an
elevation of intracellular calcium modulates gap-junctional coupling
between nerve or glial cells.
