    • Expression of multiple water channel activities in Xenopus oocytes injected with mRNA from rat kidney 

      Windhager, E E; Fischbarg, J; Agre, P; Milovanovic, S; Preston, G M; Frindt, G; Echevarria, M (Rockefeller University Press, 1993-06)
      To test the hypothesis that renal tissue contains multiple distinct water channels, mRNA prepared from either cortex, medulla, or papilla of rat kidney was injected into Xenopus oocytes. The osmotic water permeability (Pf) ...
    • The mercury-sensitive residue at cysteine 189 in the CHIP28 water channel 

      Jung, J S; Preston, G M; Agre, P; Guggino, W B (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1993-01-05)
      Water channels provide the plasma membranes of red cells and renal proximal tubules with high permeability to water, thereby permitting water to move in the direction of an osmotic gradient. Molecular identification of ...
