  1. 1. Structure, Function and Regulation of Fps1p. A Eukaryotic Solute Efflux Channel

    Author : Kristina Hedfalk; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NPA-motif; Fps1p; regulation; overexpression; osmoadaptation; glycerol facilitator; MIP;

    Abstract : Integral membrane proteins belonging to the Major Intrinsic Protein (MIP) family can be found in all kingdoms of life. MIPs are transporters of water, small neutral solutes and possibly ions, and hence are important for osmoregulation at different levels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Regulation and transport mechanisms of eukaryotic aquaporins

    Author : Madelene Palmgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Aquaporin; Membrane protein; Transport; Glycerol; Aquaglyceroporins; Regulation; arsenite;

    Abstract : Aquaporins are found in all kingdoms of life where they are involved in water homeostasis. They are small transmembrane water conducting channels that belong to the ancient protein family Major Intrinsic Proteins (MIP). READ MORE

  3. 3. Structure/function relationships of inorganic phosphate transporters

    University dissertation from Kalmar, Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Dieter R. Samyn; Bengt Persson; Hanna Sychrová; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inorganic phosphate; transporters; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Of the many nutrients that make the metabolic clock tick, inorganic phosphate fulfills an essential role in all yeast (and other organisms), being necessary for both structural and metabolic purposes. In order to transport phosphate into the cell interior, Saccharomyces cerevisiae makes use of two systems, comprising high- or low-affinity transporters, which are responsible for the cellular accumulation of inorganic phosphate.

  4. 4. Plant major intrinsic proteins - functional implications of expression and localisation studies

    University dissertation from Per Kjellbom, Department of Plant Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Laure Fraysse; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant biochemistry; immunolabelling; microarray; plasma membrane; aquaporins; plant; water; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : Plant water channels are members of the very old Major Intrinsic Protein (MIP) family, with representatives in bacteria, fungi, animals, and plants. The genome of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana contains 35 MIP genes. READ MORE
