Aquaporins and the respiratory system: advice for a lung investigator
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 2000-01-01)
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 ...
Respiratory aquaporins in lung inflammation: the night is young
(American Thoracic Society, 2000-01)
Man is not a rodent: aquaporins in the airways
(American Thoracic Society, 2001-03)
Aquaglyceroporin PbAQP during intraerythrocytic development of the malaria parasite Plasmodium berghei
(National Academy of Sciences, 2007-02-13)
The malaria parasite can use host plasma glycerol for lipid biosynthesis and membrane biogenesis during the asexual intraerythrocytic development. The molecular basis for glycerol uptake into the parasite is undefined. We ...
Hypertonic induction of aquaporin-5 expression through an ERK-dependent pathway
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2000-03-24)
Aquaporin-5 (AQP5) is a water channel protein expressed in lung, salivary gland, and lacrimal gland epithelia. Each of these sites may experience fluctuations in surface liquid osmolarity; however, osmotic regulation of ...
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, ...
Altered ubiquitination and stability of aquaporin-1 in hypertonic stress
(National Academy of Sciences, 2001-02-27)
Aquaporin-1 (AQP1) water channel protein expression is increased by hypertonic stress. The contribution of changes in protein stability to hypertonic induction of AQP1 have not been described. Incubation of BALB/c fibroblasts ...
Defective Urinary Concentrating Ability Due to a Complete Deficiency of Aquaporin-1
(Massachusetts Medical Society, 2001-07-19)
Aquaporin-1, the archetypal water-channel protein,1 was initially identified in red cells and renal proximal tubular epithelium.2 The gene for aquaporin-1 (AQP1) on chromosome 7 colocalizes with the Colton blood-group ...
Decreased pulmonary vascular permeability in aquaporin-1-null humans
(National Academy of Sciences, 2002-01-22)
The molecular determinants of water permeability in the human lung are incompletely defined. Aquaporins (AQP) are water-specific membrane channel proteins. AQP1 is present in endothelial cells in the lung, including those ...
