Wormatlas states "Gap junctions exist between the excretory canals and the adjacent hypodermis as well as between the excretory cell and the duct cell, the excretory cell and the pore cell, and the duct and pore cells (White, 1988). However in White (1988) it states “There are gap junctions between the excretory cell and the hypodermal syncytium and also between the duct cell and the pore cell.” I appreciate the Ex and duct cells are connected via the sec-exc junction but are there gap junctions in addition?
