Distribution of aquaporins in the colon of Octodon degus, a South American desert rodent
Octodon degus is a desert rodent of northern Chile, adapted to survive with a limited supply of water. This rodent has a high degree of fecal dehydration, related to colon water absorption. With the hypothesis that aquaporins ...
Two aquaporins, multiple ways of assembly
(Landes Bioscience, 2016-06)
Protein oligomerization is a biological relevant event that may provide functional advantages to biological systems. The association of aquaporin (AQP) protomers to form hetero-oligomeric assemblies is a current challenging ...
Aquaporins in Fetal Development
(Springer Verlag Berlín, 2017-03)
Water homeostasis during fetal development is of crucial physiologic importance. The successful formation and development of the placenta is critical to maintain normal fetal growth and homeostasis. The expression of several ...
The expression of aquaporins 1 and 9 in adult rat epididymis is perturbed by chronic exposure to ethanol
Aquaporins (AQPs), notably AQP-1 and AQP-9, may contribute to reabsorption of fluid and solute across the epididymis. Ethanol is related to be a toxicant affecting directly or indirectly the epididymis and the sperm motility. ...
Pollen aquaporins: What are they there for?
(Taylor & Francis, 2016-09)
In order to provide more insight into the function of aquaporins during pollination, we characterized NIP4;1 and NIP4;2, 2 pollen-specific aquaporins of Arabidopsis thaliana. NIP4;1 and NIP4;2 displayed high amino acid ...
Mitochondrial aquaporin-8: a functional peroxiporin?
(Mary Ann Liebert Inc, 2013-09)
Hepatocyte aquaporins in bile formation and cholestasis
(Frontiers In Bioscience Inc, 2011-06)
Bile formation by hepatocytes is an osmotic secretory process that is ultimately dependent on the biliary secretion of osmotically-active solutes (mainly bile salts) via specialized canalicular transporters as well as on ...
Isothermal microcalorimetry allows detection of "aquaporines" in quinoa seeds
(Elsevier Science, 2000-04)
Aquaporines are channels specifically involved in the overall transport of water through plasma membrane and tonoplast cells. In order to test their presence in quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) seeds, we used isothermal ...
Meniere's Disease: Molecular Analysis Of Aquaporins 2, 3 And Potassium Channel Kcne1 Genes In Brazilian Patients
