Cell gap junctions are a universal form of cellular connection in animal tissue that mediate the exchange of information, energy and material between adjacent cells. Clinical studies have demonstrated that the abnormal expression of the connexin 43 (Cx43) gene is closely associated with carcinogenesis and tumor progression. The present study reviewed relevant studies concerning the association between abnormal expression of Cx43 and oral squamous cell carcinoma as well as communication abnormalities of cell gap junctions.

Key words: Oral squamous cell carcinoma, Cx43, Gap junction intercellular communication, Tongue squamous cell carcinoma, Phosphorylation


细胞间隙连接是普遍存在于动物组织中的一种细胞连接形式,介导相邻细胞间的信息、能量和物质的交换。研究表明,间隙连接蛋白43(connexin 43,Cx43)基因的异常表达与肿瘤的发生发展密切相关,本文就Cx43异常表达与口腔鳞状细胞癌的相关研究进展作一综述。
