Does the Acupuncture Point Shaoshang (Lu11) in Humans Match with an Increased Density of Connexines?

Acupuncture points are clinically described by their localization and sensation measuring skin resistance. As a morphological correlate, gap junctions and connexines (Cx) were postulated but up to now only few animal studies tried to identify these structures histologically. Immunohistochemical staining of acupuncture point Lu11 of 4 human donors (76-81 years of age) were stained with antibodies against Cx 26, 30, 32 and 43. A densitometric evaluation was performed using analySIS Software 3.2 (Olympus). In the region of the acupuncture point Lu11 the density of Cx 26 and Cx 43 was increase.
