- Specific aquaporins increase the ammonia tolerance of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae mep1-3 fps1 deletion strainDawid Krenc
Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, Christian Albrechts University of Kiel, Germany
Mol Membr Biol 30:43-51. 2013..It appears that the endogenous aquaglyceroporin Fps1 may, under alkaline conditions, be beneficial to yeast by facilitating the membrane permeation of an as yet unidentified molecule other than glycerol...
- The arginine-facing amino acid residue of the rat aquaporin 1 constriction determines solute selectivity according to its size and lipophilicityDawid Krenc
Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, Christian Albrechts University of Kiel, Gutenbergstrasse, Kiel, Germany
Mol Membr Biol 31:228-38. 2014..We propose that the arginine-facing amino acid residue is the most versatile selector of aquaporin constrictions, excluding Escherichia coli glycerol facilitator-type aquaporins...
- Structural determinants of the hydrogen peroxide permeability of aquaporinsAbdulnasser Almasalmeh
Department of Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry, Christian Albrechts University of Kiel, Germany
FEBS J 281:647-56. 2014..Thus, generally, AQPs must be considered as putative players in situations of oxidative stress (e.g. in Plasmodium-infected red blood cells, immune cells, the cardiovascular system or cells expressing AQP8 in their mitochondria)...
