Connexin oligomerization in  ER-Golgi-intermediate compartment

Oligomerization of connexins Cx32 and Cx26 has also been observed in the ER-Golgi-intermediate compartment (ERGIC) (Diez et al. 1999). Heteromeric connexons containing both Cx32 and Cx26 have been observed. For the sake of simplicity, the connexon here is described as containing equal numbers of Cx26 and Cx32 subunits, although the ratio may vary.
