Aquaporins (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology) by Baoxue Yang

By Baoxue Yang

This publication offers a cutting-edge record on our present knowing of aquaporins and the longer term course of the sector. Aquaporins (AQPs) are a gaggle of water-channel proteins which are particularly permeable to water and different small molecules, corresponding to glycerol and urea. up to now 13 water-channel proteins (AQP0 – AQP12) were cloned and the mechanisms and physiological features of water delivery throughout organic membranes have lengthy been the topic of curiosity. contemporary advances within the molecular biology and body structure of water delivery have yielded new insights into how and why water strikes throughout phone membranes, and reviews on aquaporin knockout mouse types recommend that aquaporins are eager about the advance of a few ailments and so they should be helpful ambitions of study into selective-inhibitor medicines. by way of targeting the advances revamped the final two decades within the biophysics, genetics, protein constitution, molecular biology, body structure, pathophysiology and pharmacology of aquaporins in mammalian mobile membranes, this publication offers novel insights into additional mechanisms and the physiological value of water and a few small molecule shipping in mammals so one can stimulate extra study in new directions.
