Aquaporin water channels nobel lecture, december 8, 2003 by peter agre the johns hopkins university school of medicine, baltimore, md 21205. Aquaporins, also called water channels, are integral membrane proteins from a larger family of major intrinsic proteins that form pores in the membrane of. The aquaporins (aqps) are a family of small, integral membrane transport proteins and their primary func- tion is to facilitate water movement.

Abstract: chondrocytes exist in an unusual and highly variable ionic and osmotic environment in the extracellular matrix of articular cartilage. Original research–basic science: expression of aquaporin water channels in rat vagina: potential role in vaginal lubrication kwangsung park. Aquaporin (aqp) water channels are important for water homeostasis in all organisms malaria transmission is dependent on anopheles.
Aquaporin (aqp) water channel proteins enable high water permeability of certain biological membranes discovered in human red cells but expressed in. Although water is the major component of all biological fluids, the molecular pathways for water transport across cell membranes eluded. Aquaporin (aqp) water channels are expressed in high-grade tumor cells of different tissue origins based on the involvement of aqps in angiogenesis and cell.
Aquaporin protein channels in cell membranes selectively allow polar water molecules to flow through them because they're lined with specific,. Aquaporin water channels peter agre held his nobel lecture december 8, 2003, at aula magna, stockholm university he was presented by professor bengt. Many of the tissues involved in these processes are highly water permeable and express aquaporin (aqp) water channels aqp1 is expressed in microvascular. Expression and localization of aquaporin water channels in rat hepatocytes we found transcripts of three of 10 aquaporins in hepatocytes.
Aquaporin (aqp) water channels are found throughout nature and confer high- capacity water flow through cell membranes the genome of the major malaria. Aquaporins are membrane water channels that play critical roles in controlling the water contents of cells these channels are widely distributed in all kingdoms . Contents four different aquaporins (aqp1, 2, 5 and 9), integral membrane water channels that facilitate rapid passive move- ment of water. Febs lett 2003 nov 27555(1):72-8 aquaporin water channels: molecular mechanisms for human diseases agre p(1), kozono d author information.
Aquaporin water channels (aqps) represent a major transcellular route for water transport in the gastrointestinal tract until now, at least 11. Through pioneering discoveries concerning the water and ion channels of cells, this year's peter agre's experiment with cells containing or lacking aquaporin.
Abstract the discovery of the water channel aquaporin has greatly expanded our understand- ing of the regulation of the water permeability of biological. The water-transporting task is accomplished by aquaporin water channel aquaporins facilitate rapid, highly selective water transport, thus allowing the cell to. When, later on, mip homologs were shown to function as water channels, the term 'aquaporin' was suggested for the family the aquaporin.
