Highly selective water channel activity measured by voltage clamp: Analysis of planar lipid bilayers reconstituted with purified AqpZ
(National Academy of Sciences, 2001-08-14)
Aquaporins are membrane channels selectively permeated by water or water plus glycerol. Conflicting reports have described ion conductance associated with some water channels, raising the question of whether ion conductance ...
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 ...
Defective cellular trafficking of lacrimal gland aquaporin-5 in Sjögren's syndrome
Dry eyes and dry mouth are clinical hallmarks of Sjögren's syndrome. We assessed the distribution of aquaporin-5 (AQP5) in lacrimal gland biopsy samples. Healthy controls and patients with Mikulicz's disease or non-Sjögren's ...
