- The Aquaporin gene family of the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegyptiLisa L Drake
Department of Biology, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA
PLoS ONE 5:e15578. 2010..Our aim was to identify aquaporins that function as water channels, mediating transcellular water transport in MTs of adult female Ae. aegypti...
- AaCAT1 of the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti: a novel histidine-specific amino acid transporter from the SLC7 familyImmo A Hansen
Department of Biology and Institute of Applied Biosciences, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, New Mexico 88003 8001, USA
J Biol Chem 286:10803-13. 2011..Our data show that AaCAT1 has notable differences in its transport mechanism when compared with related mammalian cationic amino acid transporters. It may execute histidine-specific transport and signaling in mosquito tissues...
