Molecular Cloning and Characterization of an Aquaporin cDNA from Salivary, Lacrimal, and Respiratory Tissues
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1995-01-27)
The Aquaporin family of water channels plays a fundamental role in transmembrane water movements in numerous plant and animal tissues. Since the molecular pathway by which water is secreted by salivary glands is unknown, ...
Human red cell Aquaporin CHIP. II. Expression during normal fetal development and in a novel form of congenital dyserythropoietic anemia
(The American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1994-09)
Channel-forming integral protein (CHIP) is the archetypal member of the Aquaporin family of water channels. Delayed CHIP expression was shown recently in perinatal rat (Smith, B. L., R. Baumgarten, S. Nielsen, D. Raben, ...
Secretin promotes osmotic water transport in rat cholangiocytes by increasing aquaporin-1 water channels in plasma membrane: Evidence for a secretin-induced vesicular translocation of aquaporin-1
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1997-05-16)
Although secretin is known to stimulate ductal bile secretion by directly interacting with cholangiocytes, the precise cellular mechanisms accounting for this choleretic effect are unknown. We have previously shown that ...
Aquaporin-1 Water Channel Expression in Human Kidney
(American Society for Nephrology, 1997-01)
The pattern of aquaporin-1 water channel protein (AQP1) expression in the human kidney was analyzed by immunocytochemistry using semi-thin and optimized high-resolution immunoelectron microscopy based on freeze-substituted ...
Aquaporins in complex tissues. I. Developmental patterns in respiratory and glandular tissues of rat
(American Physological Society, 1997-11)
Developmental expression of aquaporin water transport proteins is not well understood in respiratory tract or secretory glands; here we define aquaporin protein ontogeny in rat. Expression of aquaporin-3 (AQP3), AQP4, and ...
Adenovirus-mediated Expression of Aquaporin-5 in Epithelial Cells
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1996-09-06)
A recombinant adenovirus coding for rat aquaporin-5 was constructed and plaque purified. The recombinant adenovirus (AdrAQP5) mediated the expression of aquaporin-5 in rat and human salivary cell lines and in dog kidney ...
