Gene knockdowns in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis

... To overcome this limitation, we designed an Nv eve morpholino overlapping the translation start site, as well as one directed at the exon-intron junction in the homeobox. These two independent morpholinos are expected to disrupt Nv eve activity and indeed result in comparable phenotypes." ...

plasmodesm and gap junction

... plasmodesmata but animal cells haven't any barrier like cell walls for protein transportation. So an animal cell necessarily doesn't have gap junction. But I'm not sure. Is it right? Any idea would be appreciated.

plasmodesm and gap junction

Both of plasmodesm (in plant cells) and gap juction (in animal cells) pass the micromolecules & ions and connect the cells to each other. Why do all plant cells have plasmodesmata but only some animal cells have gap junctions?
