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-6: An intracellular vesicle water channel protein in renal epithelia
(National Academy of Sciences, 1999-05-01)
All characterized mammalian aquaporins (AQPs) are localized to plasma membranes where they function chiefly to mediate water transport across cells. Here we show that AQP6 is localized exclusively in intracellular membranes ...
