...Krystle Talbot; Raymond W. M. Kwong; Kathleen M. Gilmour; Steve F. Perry ABSTRACT The present study tested the hypothesis that zebrafish ( Danio rerio ) aquaporin-1a1 (AQP1a1) serves as a multi-functional channel for the transfer of the small gaseous molecules, CO 2 and ammonia, as well as water...

...Steffen S. Madsen; Joanna Bujak; Christian K. Tipsmark We investigated the salinity-dependent expression dynamics of seven aquaporin paralogs ( aqp1a, aqp3a, aqp7, aqp8ab, aqp10a, aqp10b and aqp11a ) in several tissues of euryhaline Japanese medaka ( Oryzias latipes ). All paralogs except aqp7...

...Y. Ogushi; D. Kitagawa; T. Hasegawa; M. Suzuki; S. Tanaka SUMMARY The ventral pelvic skin of the tree frog Hyla japonica expresses two kinds of arginine vasotocin (AVT)-stimulated aquaporins (AQP-h2 and AQP-h3), which affect the capacity of the frog's skin to absorb water. As such, it can be used...

...A. S. Verkman SUMMARY There is considerable potential for translating knowledge of aquaporin structure, function and physiology to the clinic. One area is in aquaporin-based diagnostics. The discovery of AQP4 autoantibodies as a marker of the neuromyelitis optica form of multiple sclerosis has...

... to the presence of aquaporins (AQPs), the ubiquitous water transport proteins. There are 13 known human AQPs, and they are tissue and even membrane specific. It is now clear that the number and type of AQPs within a membrane are the major determinants of its water transport capacity. There are many gene homologs...
