The human Aquaporin-5 gene. Molecular characterization and chromosomal localization.
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1996-04-12)
The cDNA for the fifth mammalian aquaporin (AQP5) was isolated from rat, and expression was demonstrated in rat salivary and lacrimal glands, cornea, and lung (Raina, S., Preston, G. M., Guggino, W. B., and Agre, P. (1995) ...
Molecular analysis of insertion/deletion mutations in protein 4.1 in elliptocytosis. II. Determination of molecular genetic origins of rearrangements
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1990-08)
Protein 4.1 is an approximately 80-kD structural protein in the membrane skeleton which underlies and supports the erythrocyte plasma membrane. The preceding companion paper presents a biochemical study of two abnormal ...
Aquaporin water channels: atomic structure molecular dynamics meet clinical medicine
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 2002-06-01)
Association between human erythrocyte calmodulin and the cytoplasmic surface of human erythrocyte membranes
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1983-05-25)
This report describes Ca2+-dependent binding of 125I-labeled calmodulin (125I-CaM) to erythrocyte membranes and identification of two new CaM-binding proteins. Erythrocyte CaM labeled with 125I-Bolton Hunter reagent fully ...
Quantification of Aquaporin-CHIP water channel protein in microdissected renal tubules by fluorescence-based ELISA
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1995-01)
Several transporters have been localized along the nephron by physiological methods or immunocytochemistry. However, the actual abundance of these molecules has not been established. To accomplish this goal, we have developed ...
The Rh polypeptide is a major fatty acid-acylated erythrocyte membrane protein
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1988-12-05)
The erythrocyte Rh antigens contain an Mr = 32,000 integral protein which is thought to contribute in some way to the organization of surrounding phospholipid. To search for possible fatty acid acylation of the Rh polypeptide, ...
Loss of perivascular aquaporin 4 may underlie deficient water and K+ homeostasis in the human epileptogenic hippocampus
(National Academy of Sciences, 2005-01-25)
An abnormal accumulation of extracellular K+ in the brain has been implicated in the generation of seizures in patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) and hippocampal sclerosis. Experimental studies have shown ...
Targeted disruption of the Cl−/HCO3− exchanger Ae2 results in osteopetrosis in mice
(National Academy of Sciences, 2009-02-03)
Osteoclasts are multinucleated bone-resorbing cells responsible for constant remodeling of bone tissue and for maintaining calcium homeostasis. The osteoclast creates an enclosed space, a lacuna, between their ruffled ...
The human AQP4 gene: definition of the locus encoding two water channel polypeptides in brain
(National Academy of Sciences, 1996-10-01)
The aquaporin family of membrane water transport proteins are expressed in diverse tissues, and in brain the predominant water channel protein is AQP4. Here we report the isolation and characterization of the human AQP4 ...
The mercury-sensitive residue at cysteine 189 in the CHIP28 water channel
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1993-01-05)
Water channels provide the plasma membranes of red cells and renal proximal tubules with high permeability to water, thereby permitting water to move in the direction of an osmotic gradient. Molecular identification of ...
