Reconstitution of functional water channels in liposomes containing purified red cell CHIP28 protein
(American Chemical Society, 1992)
Reconstitution and functional comparison of purified GlpF and AqpZ, the glycerol and water channels from Escherichia coli
(National Academy of Sciences, 2001-02-27)
A large family of membrane channel proteins selective for transport of water (aquaporins) or water plus glycerol (aquaglyceroporins) has been found in diverse life forms. Escherichia coli has two members of this family-a ...
Isolation of the cDNA for erythrocyte integral membrane protein of 28 kilodaltons: member of an ancient channel family
(National Academy of Sciences, 1991-12-15)
CHIP28 is a 28-kDa integral membrane protein with similarities to membrane channels and is found in erythrocytes and renal tubules. A cDNA for CHIP28 was isolated from human fetal liver cDNA template by a three-step ...
Regulation of the Escherichia coli water channel gene aqpZ
(National Academy of Sciences, 1998-03-31)
Osmotic movement of water across bacterial cell membranes is postulated to be a homeostatic mechanism for maintaining cell turgor. The molecular water transporter remained elusive until discovery of the Escherichia coli ...
Aquaporin-1 water channel protein in lung: ontogeny, steroid-induced expression, and distribution in rat
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1996-05-15)
At birth water is rapidly reabsorbed from the distal lung in preparation for alveolar gas exchange. To investigate a potential role for the AQP1 water channel in development, lung membranes from fetal and perinatal rats ...
Functional analysis of aquaporin-1 deficient red cells
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1996-01-19)
The aquaporin-1 (AQP1) water transport protein contains a polymorphism corresponding to the Colton red blood cell antigens. To define the fraction of membrane water permeability mediated by AQP1, red cells were obtained ...
Adenovirus-mediated Expression of Aquaporin-5 in Epithelial Cells
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1996-09-06)
A recombinant adenovirus coding for rat aquaporin-5 was constructed and plaque purified. The recombinant adenovirus (AdrAQP5) mediated the expression of aquaporin-5 in rat and human salivary cell lines and in dog kidney ...
Direct immunogold labeling of aquaporin-4 in square arrays of astrocyte and ependymocyte plasma membranes in rat brain and spinal cord
(National Academy of Sciences, 1998-09-29)
Aquaporin (AQP) water channels are abundant in the brain and spinal cord, where AQP1 and AQP4 are believed to play major roles in water metabolism and osmoregulation. Immunocytochemical analysis of the brain recently ...
Specialized membrane domains for water transport in glial cells: high resolution immunogold cytochemistry of aquaporin-4 in rat brain
(Copyright held by the original publisher: Journal of Neuroscience, 1997-01-01)
Membrane water transport is critically involved in brain volume homeostasis and in the pathogenesis of brain edema. The cDNA encoding aquaporin-4 (AQP4) water channel protein was recently isolated from rat brain. We used ...
The Aquaporins, Blueprints for Cellular Plumbing Systems
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1998-06-12)
