Hypoxia, AMPK activation and uterine artery vasoreactivity.
Aurora, United States. In J Physiol, Jul 2015
ABSTRACT: Genes near adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase-α1 (PRKAA1) have been implicated in the greater uterine artery (UtA) blood flow and relative protection from fetal growth restriction seen in altitude-adapted Andean populations.
Genes and proteins of urea transporters.
Atlanta, United States. In Subcell Biochem, 2013
The SLC14a urea transporter family contains two major subgroups: SLC14a1, the UT-B urea transporter originally isolated from erythrocytes; and SLC14a2, the UT-A group originally isolated from kidney inner medulla.
Urea transport in the kidney.
Atlanta, United States. In Compr Physiol, 2011
Currently, the SLC14A family of urea transporters contains two major subgroups: SLC14A1, the UT-B urea transporter originally isolated from erythrocytes; and SLC14A2, the UT-A group with six distinct isoforms described to date.
Cloning and characterization of the vasopressin-regulated urea transporter.
Boston, United States. In Nature, 1993
Here we report the isolation of a complementary DNA from rabbit renal medulla that encodes a 397-amino-acid membrane glycoprotein, UT2, with the functional characteristics of the vasopressin-sensitive urea transporter previously described in in vitro-perfused inner medullary collecting ducts.
