The structure of this volume on aquaporins follows the points laid out above and thus covers the developments from basic research to potential pharmacological use. Situated between pharmacology textbooks and recent scientific papers this book provides a timely overview for readers from the fundamental as well as the applied disciplines.   Written by an international group of contributors at the forefront of the field, Aquaporins in Health and Disease: New Molecular Targets for Drug Discovery presents the latest research advances in aquaporins and other major intrinsic protein (MIP) channels. The first section of the book describes the general concepts of aquaporin channel. Aquaporin Regulation, Volume , the latest release in the Vitamins and Hormones series, highlights new advances in the field, with this new volume presenting interesting chapters highlighting Perspectives on the evolution of aquaporin superfamily, Structure and dynamics of aquaporin-1, Selectivity and Transport in Aquaporins from Molecular Simulation Studies, Aquaporin regulation in.

Purchase Aquaporins, Volume 51 - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBN , Price: $ Brand new Book. Aquaporins summarizes the present knowledge in this expanding field of research, starting with the structural analysis of water channel proteins. Subsequent chapters begin with mammalian aquaporins, examining physiology and pathophysiology, analysis of knock-out model animals, and the regulation of aquaporin function.   the aquaporin family of water channels consists of 10 proteins cloned from mammals and many more from amphibians, plants, yeast, bacteria, and various lower organisms. There has been considerable interest in the biology of aquaporins (AQPs) with more than studies published over the past 5 years on aquaporin cloning, genetics, tissue localization, developmental and regulated . This book provides a state-of-the-art report on our current understanding of aquaporins and the future direction of the field. Aquaporins (AQPs) are a group of water-channel proteins that are specifically permeable to water and other small molecules, such as glycerol and urea. To date thirteen.

Aquaporins / This book provides a state-of-the-art report on our current understanding of aquaporins and the future direction of the field. Aquaporins (AQPs) are a group of water-channel proteins that are specifically permeable to water and other small molecules, such as glycerol and urea. Aquaporins were discovered in by Peter Agre. His work transformed our understanding of the fundamental biology of cells, and he won a Nobel Prize for it in We’re now using aquaporins to purify water on a large scale – in industries, in our homes and even in space – faster and more efficiently than ever before.
