Description

Connexin 32 and CMTX

My Current research is aimed at answering the fundamental questions surrounding Connexin 32 that remain to be solved. Specifically, I am researching the gating of Connexin 32 and how this may become faulty by advent of mutation, and how this may lead to pathology in CMTX. Currently I am utilizing 
mutagenesis to assess how the gating of Connexin 32 is altered when comparing the Wild-type and mutants (used to mimic CMTX). I feel as if this research is essential as leaning more about Connexin 32, results in learning more about CMTX. CMTX is an X-linked muscular dystrophy resulting form mutation in the GJB1 gene, encoding Connexin 32.
