Gap Junction (nexus): a specialized intercellular connection between a multitude of animal cell-types; directly connects the cytoplasm of 2 cells, which allows various molecules and ions  to pass freely between cells; one gap junction channel is composed of two connexons (hemichannels) which connect across the intercellular space; gap junctions are analogous to the plasmodesmata that join plant cells

passief iontransport door kanaaltjes  Gap Junctions are channels between cell membranes that allow ions and small molecules to pass directly from one cell to another. These channels are formed by membrane proteins called connexins. Six connexins in the cell membrane form a channel called a connexon. Connexons from two cells form a gap junction. Gap junctions permit electrical signals to pass directly from one cell to another.

Cell Junction (intercellular bridge) of plasma membrane: a type of structure that exists within the tissue of some multicellular organisms (animals); consist of multiprotein complexes that provide contact between neighboring cells or between cell and the extracellular matrix, strengthen tissues and allow the exchange of metabolites; especially abundant in epithelial tissues; types: adherens junctions, desomosomes, hemidesomosomes, gap junctions, tight junctions; contain proteins and…

Muscle tissue is elongated, stimulated to contract, and vascular (needs a lot of blood supply for energy). There are three types as depicted in the image: skeletal - striated, cylindrical, multi-nucleiated, and the biggest cell of the three types. Cardiac - striated, branched, 1-2 nuclei, has intercalated discs, and are the second biggest. Intercalated discs have desmosomes and gap junctions for molecule and liquid transport. Smooth - nonstriated, spindle shaped, 1 nuclei, and are the…
