Aquaporin-1 water channel protein in lung: ontogeny, steroid-induced expression, and distribution in rat
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1996-05-15)
At birth water is rapidly reabsorbed from the distal lung in preparation for alveolar gas exchange. To investigate a potential role for the AQP1 water channel in development, lung membranes from fetal and perinatal rats ...
Keratinocyte growth factor modulates alveolar epithelial cell phenotype in vitro: expression of aquaporin 5
(American Thoracic Society, 1998-04)
We investigated the role of keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) in regulation of alveolar epithelial cell (AEC) phenotype in vitro. Effects of KGF on cell morphology, expression of surfactant apoproteins A, B, and C (SP-A, ...
