Functional expression and characterization of an archaeal aquaporin. AqpM from methanothermobacter marburgensis.
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2003-03-21)
Researchers have described aquaporin water channels from diverse eubacterial and eukaryotic species but not from the third division of life, Archaea. Methanothermobacter marburgensis is a methanogenic archaeon that thrives ...
Partial deficiency of erythrocyte spectrin in hereditary spherocytosis.
(Nature Publishing Group, 1985-03-28)
Hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is a common, clinically heterogeneous haemolytic anaemia in which the primary erythrocyte defect is believed to be some abnormality in the spectrin-actin membrane skeleton, leading to loss of ...

Inheritance pattern and clinical response to splenectomy as a reflection of erythrocyte spectrin deficiency in hereditary spherocytosis
(Massachusetts Medical Society, 1986-12-18)
To determine how various inheritance patterns and responses to splenectomy relate to erythrocyte spectrin deficiencies in hereditary spherocytosis, we measured the spectrin content of erythrocytes by radioimmunoassay in ...
The three-dimensional structure of aquaporin-1
(Nature Publishing Group, 1997-06-05)
The entry and exit of water from cells is a fundamental process of life. Recognition of the high water permeability of red blood cells led to the proposal that specialized water pores exist in the plasma membrane. Expression ...
Heterotetrameric composition of aquaporin-4 water channels.
(American Chemical Society, 1999-08-24)
Aquaporin (AQP) water channel proteins are tetrameric assemblies of individually active approximately 30 kDa subunits. AQP4 is the predominant water channel protein in brain, but immunoblotting of native tissues has ...
Aquaporins in complex tissues. I. Developmental patterns in respiratory and glandular tissues of rat
(American Physological Society, 1997-11)
Developmental expression of aquaporin water transport proteins is not well understood in respiratory tract or secretory glands; here we define aquaporin protein ontogeny in rat. Expression of aquaporin-3 (AQP3), AQP4, and ...
Rapid gating and anion permeability of an intracellular aquaporin
(Nature Publishing Group, 1992-11-11)
Aquaporin (AQP) water-channel proteins are freely permeated by water but not by ions or charged solutes. Although mammalian aquaporins were believed to be located in plasma membranes, rat AQP6 is restricted to intracellular ...
Linkage of dominant hereditary spherocytosis to the gene for the erythrocyte membrane-skeleton protein ankyrin
(Massachusetts Medical Society, 1990-10-11)
Aquaporin water channels [Nobel Lecture]
