  1. 1. Structural Details of Human Aquaporin Regulation : Three stories of three aquaporins

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Veronika Nesverova; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2020-02-02]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquaporin; membrane proteins; protein trafficking; water channel; aquaporin 0; aquaporin 5; aquaporin 2; cryo-EM; protein phosphorylation; protein-protein interaction; aquaporin regulation; aquaporins;

    Abstract : Every cell is surrounded by a thin plasma membrane, protecting it from its surrounding. Specialized protein channels and transporters are embedded in this membrane, ensuring selective transport of molecules in and out of the cells. To maintain optimal hydration, water channels called aquaporins (AQPs) are present in every cell of our body. READ MORE

  2. 2. Water transport through perinatal skin Barrier function and aquaporin water channels

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Ågren; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatrics; Preterm infant; Transepidermal water loss; Aquaporin; Skin biology; Hyperosmolarity; Pediatrik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Paediatric medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Pediatrisk medicin; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : While constituting a well functioning interface with the aqueous environment in utero, the skin offers a poor barrier after very preterm birth. As a result, transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is high, a fact which has important clinical consequences in these infants. READ MORE

  3. 3. Plant aquaporin regulation: Structural and functional studies using diffraction and scattering techniques

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Michael Järvå; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; X-ray Crystallography; Membrane protein; Plasma membrane intrinsic protein; Aquaporin; pH gating; mercury; proteoliposome assay; water transport; SANS; SAXS; WAXS; nanodisc; liposome;

    Abstract : Water is the basis for life as we know it. It is only logical then that all organisms have evolved specialized proteins, aquaporins, which regulate water flow across their membranes. Plants, which are immobile, depend more on their environment and also use water flows to move, to breathe, and to grow. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Aquaporins - Expression and Regulation of Water Channel Proteins

    University dissertation from Department of Plant Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Maria Karlsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant biochemistry; immunocytochemistry; overexpression; phosphorylation; aquaporin; water channel; Växtbiokemi; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : Aquaporins are integral membrane proteins that function as water channels highly specific for water or as aquaglyceroporins permeable to water as well as small solutes such as glycerol and urea. The model plant Arabidopsis thaliana has 35 genes encoding aquaporin proteins. READ MORE

  5. 5. Plant Aquaporins: A study of expression, localization, specificity, and regulation

    University dissertation from KFS AB

    Author : Sara Sjövall Larsen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtbiokemi; Plant biochemistry; phosphorylation; protein kinase; overexpression; NIP; MIP; plant; aquaporin;

    Abstract : Aquaporins, or Major Intrinsic Proteins (MIPs), are integral proteins that facilitate transport of water and other small neutral solutes across biological membranes. They belong to a well conserved and ancient family of proteins, present in all organisms ranging from bacteria to plants and humans. READ MORE
