Abstract

Leydig cells are coupled in vivo by numerous gap junctions. In vivo and in vitro cells were immunolabeled by connexin 43 (Cx43) but not by Cx26 or Cx32 antibodies; immunoblotting confirmed specificity of Cx43 labeling. Pairs of Leydig cells dissociated from mouse testis were studied by dual whole cell voltage clamp, and a high incidence of dye (n = 20) and electrical coupling in = 60; >90%) was found. Coupling coefficients were near 1 and junctional conductance (g(j)) averaged 7.2 +/-1.2 nS (SE, n = 40). Large transjunctional voltage (V-j) decreased g(j); currents decayed exponentially with time constants of seconds thatdecreased at greater V-j. The residual conductance at large V-j was at least similar to 40% of the initial conductance. Exposure of cell pairs to saline solutions saturated with CO2 (n = 15) or containing 2 mMhalothane (n = 15) or 3.5 mM heptanol (n = 15) rapidly and reversiblyreduced g(j). In eight cell pairs, gating of single junctional channels was observed during halothane-induced reduction in g(j). Most gating events at V-j < 40 mV were fit by a Gaussian distribution with a mean of similar to 100 pS, With V-j > 40 mV, smaller transitions of similar to 30 pS were also recorded, and the frequency and duration of the similar to 100-pS transitions decreased. Also, similar to 70-pS transitions between 30- and 100-pS conductances were observed in the absenceof 70-pS transitions to or from the baseline, indicating that the 30-pS conductance was a substate induced by large V-j.
