Molecular physiology of the Rh ammonia transport proteins.
Gainesville, United States. In Curr Opin Nephrol Hypertens, 2010
RECENT FINDINGS: The Rh glycoproteins, RhAG/Rhag, RhBG/Rhbg and RhCG/Rhcg, transport ammonia in the form of molecular NH3, although there is some evidence suggesting the possibility of NH4 transport.
Rh glycoproteins in epithelial cells: lessons from rat and mice studies.
Paris, France. In Transfus Clin Biol, 2006
Review. Animal studies show Rhbg has a role in transmembrane NH3 or NH4+ transport in epithelial cells. The absence of distal tubular acidosis or hyperammonemia in Rhbg KO mice raises new questions about the physiological significance of this protein.
