Cholangiocytes express the aquaporin CHIP and transport water via a channel-mediated mechanism
(National Academy of Sciences, 1994-12-20)
Cholangiocytes line the intrahepatic bile ducts and regulate salt and water secretion during bile formation, but the mechanism(s) regulating ductal water movement remains obscure. A water-selective channel, the aquaporin ...
Distribution of the aquaporin CHIP in secretory and resorptive epithelia and capillary endothelia
(National Academy of Sciences, 1993-08-01)
The existence of water-selective channels has been postulated to explain the high water permeability of erythrocytes and certain epithelial cells. The aquaporin CHIP (channel-forming integral membrane protein of 28 kDa), ...
