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

By Baoxue Yang

This ebook presents a cutting-edge file on our present figuring out of aquaporins and the long run path of the sector. Aquaporins (AQPs) are a gaggle of water-channel proteins which are in particular permeable to water and different small molecules, comparable to glycerol and urea. to this point 13 water-channel proteins (AQP0 – AQP12) were cloned and the mechanisms and physiological features of water shipping throughout organic membranes have lengthy been the topic of curiosity. fresh advances within the molecular biology and body structure of water delivery have yielded new insights into how and why water strikes throughout telephone membranes, and reviews on aquaporin knockout mouse versions recommend that aquaporins are desirous about the advance of a few illnesses they usually can be worthwhile objectives of study into selective-inhibitor medications. by means of concentrating on the advances remodeled the final two decades within the biophysics, genetics, protein constitution, molecular biology, body structure, pathophysiology and pharmacology of aquaporins in mammalian cellphone membranes, this publication offers novel insights into extra mechanisms and the physiological importance of water and a few small molecule delivery in mammals so as to stimulate extra examine in new directions.
