Aquaporin-4 water channel protein in the rat retina and optic nerve: polarized expression in Müller cells and fibrous astrocytes
(Society for Neuroscience, 1998-04-01)
The water permeability of cell membranes differs by orders of magnitude, and most of this variability reflects the differential expression of aquaporin water channels. We have recently found that the CNS contains a member ...
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 ...
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 ...
Respiratory aquaporins in lung inflammation: the night is young
(American Thoracic Society, 2000-01)
Defective glycerol metabolism in aquaporin 9 (AQP9) knockout mice
(National Academy of Sciences, 2007-02-27)
Aquaporin-9 (AQP9) is an aquaglyceroporin membrane channel shown biophysically to conduct water, glycerol, and other small solutes. Because the physiological role/s of AQP9 remain undefined and the expression sites of AQP9 ...
