We have studied electronic transport through carbon nanotube (CNT)-graphene junctions produced by nano-manipulation. Our experiments show that the junction transparency is strongly gate-tunable depending on the resistance of the junction itself and does not depend on the CNT-graphene overlapping distance. We explain the gate dependence by the charge induced variation of the CNT-graphene distance. The absence of the junction length dependence of the resistance indicates that the charge injection occurs via a single point most likely to be at the end of the CNT.
