Water and ion permeation of aquaporin-1 in planar lipid bilayers. Major differences in structural determinants and stoichiometry.
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2001-08-24)
The aquaporin-1 (AQP1) water channel protein is known to facilitate the rapid movement of water across cell membranes, but a proposed secondary role as an ion channel is still unsettled. Here we describe a method to ...
Partial deficiency of erythrocyte spectrin in hereditary spherocytosis.
(Nature Publishing Group, 1985-03-28)
Hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is a common, clinically heterogeneous haemolytic anaemia in which the primary erythrocyte defect is believed to be some abnormality in the spectrin-actin membrane skeleton, leading to loss of ...
The Rh polypeptide is a major fatty acid-acylated erythrocyte membrane protein
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1988-12-05)
The erythrocyte Rh antigens contain an Mr = 32,000 integral protein which is thought to contribute in some way to the organization of surrounding phospholipid. To search for possible fatty acid acylation of the Rh polypeptide, ...
Reconstitution of functional water channels in liposomes containing purified red cell CHIP28 protein
(American Chemical Society, 1992)
Deficient red-cell spectrin in severe, recessively inherited spherocytosis
(Massachusetts Medical Society, 1982-05-13)
Functional expression and characterization of an archaeal aquaporin. AqpM from methanothermobacter marburgensis.
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2003-03-21)
Researchers have described aquaporin water channels from diverse eubacterial and eukaryotic species but not from the third division of life, Archaea. Methanothermobacter marburgensis is a methanogenic archaeon that thrives ...

Inheritance pattern and clinical response to splenectomy as a reflection of erythrocyte spectrin deficiency in hereditary spherocytosis
(Massachusetts Medical Society, 1986-12-18)
To determine how various inheritance patterns and responses to splenectomy relate to erythrocyte spectrin deficiencies in hereditary spherocytosis, we measured the spectrin content of erythrocytes by radioimmunoassay in ...
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 ...
