Connexin alignment. The Cx26 sequences from different species were aligned using the Mega5 program, in order to investigate the evolutionary conservation of the aspartic residue located in codon. The multiple alignments revealed a total conservation of this residue across all species, suggesting that this residue is crucial for the protein functionality
