New
Takemasa et al., Tsukuba, Japan. In Physiol Rep, Oct 2015
The purposes of our study were to examine (1) Rh B glycoprotein (Rhbg) and Rh C glycoprotein (Rhcg) expressions in mouse skeletal muscle; and (2) the effect of 6-week training on Rhbg and Rhcg expressions.

New
Wood et al., Canada. In J Comp Physiol B, Jul 2015
Branchial mRNA expressions of Rhbg and Rhp2 were unaffected by NH4HCO3 or NH4Cl, but v-type H(+)-ATPase was down-regulated by both treatments, and Rhbg and Na(+)/H(+) exchanger NHE2 were up-regulated by HCl.

New
Weiner et al., China. In Am J Physiol Renal Physiol, Jul 2015

New
Perry et al., Ottawa, Canada. In Physiol Biochem Zool, Mar 2015
Protein and mRNA expression of Rhcg1, an apically expressed ammonia-conducting channel, were significantly elevated after 4-d exposure to alkaline water, whereas the mRNA expression of Rhag, Rhbg, and urea transporter were unaffected.
Physiological and molecular responses of the spiny dogfish shark (Squalus acanthias) to high environmental ammonia: scavenging for nitrogen.
New
Wood et al., Vancouver, Canada. In J Exp Biol, Feb 2015
We cloned Rh cDNAs (Rhag, Rhbg and Rhp2) and evaluated gill ammonia handling in Squalus acanthias.

The RH gene family in vertebrates consists of four major genes (RH, RHAG, RHBG, and RHCG).
Ammonia transport in the kidney by Rhesus glycoproteins.
Review
Verlander et al., Gainesville, United States. In Am J Physiol Renal Physiol, 2014
Subsequently, the nonerythroid Rh glycoproteins, Rh B Glycoprotein (Rhbg) and Rh C Glycoprotein (Rhcg), were cloned and identified as ammonia transporters.
Effect of collecting duct-specific deletion of both Rh B Glycoprotein (Rhbg) and Rh C Glycoprotein (Rhcg) on renal response to metabolic acidosis.
Weiner et al., Gainesville, United States. In Am J Physiol Renal Physiol, 2014
The Rhesus (Rh) glycoproteins, Rh B and Rh C Glycoprotein (Rhbg and Rhcg, respectively), are ammonia-specific transporters expressed in renal distal nephron and collecting duct sites that are necessary for normal rates of ammonia excretion.
Ammonia transport across the skin of adult rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) exposed to high environmental ammonia (HEA).
Wood et al., Hamilton, Canada. In J Comp Physiol B, 2014
Genes (Rhcg1, Rhcg2, Rhbg, NHE-2, v-type H(+)-ATPase) known to be involved in ammonia excretion at the gills of trout were all expressed at the mRNA level in the skin, but their expression did not increase with HEA pre-exposure.

pH sensitivity of ammonium transport by Rhbg.
GeneRIF
Hamm et al., New Orleans, United States. In Am J Physiol Cell Physiol, 2010
These data indicate that transport of NH(4)(+) and methyl ammonium (+) by Rhbg is pH sensitive.

Verlander et al., 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.
