    • Arsenite transport by mammalian aquaglyceroporins AQP7 and AQP9 

      Rosen, B P; Agre, P; Mukhopadhyay, R; Carbrey, J M; Shen, J; Liu, Z (National Academy of Sciences, 2002-04-30)
      Much is known about the transport of arsenite and antimonite into microbes, but the identities of mammalian transport proteins are unknown. The Saccharomyces cerevisiae FPS1 gene encodes a membrane protein homologous to ...
    • Reduced arsenic clearance and increased toxicity in aquaglyceroporin-9-null mice 

      Mukhopadhyay, R; Agre, P; Rosen, B P; Nielsen, S; DiCarlo, S E; Lujan, H L; Liu, Y; Wang, Y; Rojek, A; Yoshinaga, M; Zhou, Y; Song, L; Carbrey, J M (National Academy of Sciences, 2009-09-15)
      Expressed in liver, aquaglyceroporin-9 (AQP9) is permeated by glycerol, arsenite, and other small, neutral solutes. To evaluate a possible protective role, AQP9-null mice were evaluated for in vivo arsenic toxicity. After ...
