GJB1 One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell. Belongs to the connexin family. Beta-type (group I) subfamily. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
