    • Molecular cloning and characterization of AqpZ, a water channel from Escherichia coli 

      Bishai, William R.; Guggino, William B.; Agre, Peter; Preston, Gregory M.; Calamita, Giuseppe (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1995-12-08)
      The aquaporin family of molecular water channels is widely expressed throughout the plant and animal kingdoms. No bacterial aquaporins are known; however, sequence-related bacterial genes have been identified that encode ...
    • Regulation of the Escherichia coli water channel gene aqpZ 

      Agre, Peter; Bremer, Erhard; Bishai, William R.; Bonhivers, Mélanie; Kempf, Bettina; Calamita, Giuseppe (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 ...
