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 ...
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 three-dimensional structure of aquaporin-1
(Nature Publishing Group, 1997-06-05)
The entry and exit of water from cells is a fundamental process of life. Recognition of the high water permeability of red blood cells led to the proposal that specialized water pores exist in the plasma membrane. Expression ...
