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 ...
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 ...
Aquaporins and the respiratory system: advice for a lung investigator

Proteomic analysis of lithium-induced nephrogenic diabetes insipidus: Mechanisms for aquaporin 2 down-regulation and cellular proliferation
(National Academy of Sciences, 2008-03-04)
Lithium is a commonly prescribed mood-stabilizing drug. However, chronic treatment with lithium induces numerous kidney-related side effects, such as dramatically reduced aquaporin 2 (AQP2) abundance, altered renal function, ...
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 ...
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 ...
Aquaporin-11: a channel protein lacking apparent transport function expressed in brain
(BioMed Central, 2006-05)
BACKGROUND: The aquaporins are a family of integral membrane proteins composed of two subfamilies: the orthodox aquaporins, which transport only water, and the aquaglyceroporins, which transport glycerol, urea, or other ...
