Functional requirement of aquaporin-5 in plasma membranes of sweat glands
(National Academy of Sciences, 2002-01-08)
The distribution and function of aquaporins (AQPs) have not previously been defined in sweat glands. In this study, AQP1, AQP3, and AQP5 mRNA were demonstrated in rat paw by reverse transcription (RT)-PCR, but AQP2 and ...
Aquaporin 9 is the major pathway for glycerol uptake by mouse erythrocytes, with implications for malarial virulence
(National Academy of Sciences, 2007-07-24)
Human and rodent erythrocytes are known to be highly permeable to glycerol. Aquaglyceroporin aquaporin (AQP)3 is the major glycerol channel in human and rat erythrocytes. However, AQP3 expression has not been observed in ...
Delayed onset of brain edema and mislocalization of aquaporin-4 in dystrophin-null transgenic mice
(National Academy of Sciences, 2002-10-01)
Cerebral water accumulation was studied during induction of brain edema in dystrophin-null transgenic mice (mdx-betageo) and control mice. Immunofluorescence and immunoelectron microscopic analyses of dystrophin-null brains ...
