  1. 1. Plant aquaporins

    University dissertation from Author

    Author : Ingela Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water deficit; calcium; plasma membrane; Plant biochemistry; channel; phosphorylation; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : Aquaporins are integral membrane proteins that specifically transports water. In plants, aquaporins have been identified in the plasma membrane and in the vacuolar membrane. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human Aquaporins: Production, Characterization and Interactions

    University dissertation from Author

    Author : Jennie Sjöhamn; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquaporins; membrane protein; protein production; protein characterization; protein:protein interactions; structural biochemistry;

    Abstract : Membrane proteins are essential components of the cell and responsible for the communication with the outside environment and transport of molecules across the membrane. Water transport is facilitated by aquaporins, which are water selective transmembrane pores that serve to maintain cell homeostasis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring Unorthodox Aquaporins : Characterization of NbXIPs & AtNIPs

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Division of Biochemistry and Structural Biology

    Author : Henry Ampah-Korsah; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aquaporins; XIPs; NIPs; Phosphorylation; Pichia pastoris; Overexpression; boric acid; membrane proteins;

    Abstract : Popular science summaryWater is very important for life. In order to survive every organism needs to control the amount of water in its cells. One of the main ways the cell regulates its water content is through aquaporins. Aquaporins are membrane proteins that allow water and/or small neutral molecules to enter or exit the cell. READ MORE

  4. 4. Production and Characterisation of Aquaporins and Proton-Translocating Transhydrogenase

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Division of Biochemistry and Structural Biology

    Author : Mikael Ekvall; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aquaporins; transhydrogenase; membrane proteins; x-ray chrystallography; structure; protein production; overproduction;

    Abstract : Dissertation Abstract Water transport in eukaryotic cells is a highly regulated and fine-tuned process. Water channel protein known as aquaporins (AQPs), constitute the main cellular water transport system, preserving water homeostasis by maintaining specific selectivity-mechanisms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Water transport regulation: Biochemical and structural analyses of eukaryotic aquaporins

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Chemistry, Division of Biochemistry and Structural Biology

    Author : Anna Maria Nyblom; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; X-ray crystallography; regulation; aquaporins; function; structure; membrane proteins;

    Abstract : Water is essential for all living beings. Aquaporins are water channel proteins embedded in the membranes of cells. These macromolecules are found in all kingdoms of life and they control water homeostasis by diverse regulation mechanisms. READ MORE
