The key role of aquaporin 3 and aquaporin 10 in the pathogenesis of pompholyx.
United States. In Med Hypotheses, May 2015
The mechanistic explanation for the epidermal fissuring might lie in the over-expression across the mid and upper epidermis, including the stratum corneum, of two water/glycerol channel proteins aquaporin 3 and aquaporin 10, expressed in the keratinocytes of afflicted pompholyx patients.
Aquaporins Mediate Silicon Transport in Humans.
Québec, Canada. In Plos One, 2014
Here, we show for the first time that the human aquaglyceroporins, i.e., AQP3, AQP7, AQP9 and AQP10 can act as silicon transporters in both Xenopus laevis oocytes and HEK-293 cells.
Aquaporin expression and function in human pluripotent stem cell-derived retinal pigmented epithelial cells.
Tampere, Finland. In Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci, 2013
RESULTS: AQP1, AQP3, AQP4, AQP5, AQP6, AQP7, AQP10, AQP11, and AQP12 were expressed in hESC- and hiPSC-derived RPE cells.
Ammonia and urea permeability of mammalian aquaporins.
Denmark. In Handb Exp Pharmacol, 2008
The human aquaporins,AQP3,AQP7, AQP8,AQP9, and possibly AQP10, are permeable to ammonia, and AQP7, AQP9, and possibly AQP3, are permeable to urea.
