    • Molecular cloning and characterization of AqpZ, a water channel from Escherichia coli 

      Bishai, W R; Guggino, W B; Agre, P; Preston, G M; Calamita, G (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1995-12-08)
      The aquaporin family of molecular water channels is widely expressed throughout the plant and animal kingdoms. No bacterial aquaporins are known; however, sequence-related bacterial genes have been identified that encode ...
    • Regulation of the Escherichia coli water channel gene aqpZ 

      Agre, P; Bremer, E; Bishai, W R; Bonhivers, M; Kempf, B; Calamita, G (National Academy of Sciences, 1998-03-31)
      Osmotic movement of water across bacterial cell membranes is postulated to be a homeostatic mechanism for maintaining cell turgor. The molecular water transporter remained elusive until discovery of the Escherichia coli ...
