BACKGROUND The number of cells within mammalian tissues is maintained by growth-stimulating and growth-inhibiting mechanisms, with inhibitory signals being superimposed over growth stimuli. This is reflected, in the culture of normal adherent cells, by the phenomenon of density-dependent inhibition of growth: cells cease proliferation after becoming a(More)
Arginine-vasopressin (AVP) stimulates the redistribution of water channels, aquaporin-2 (AQP2) from intracellular vesicles into the plasma membrane of renal collecting duct principal cells. By this AVP directs 10% of the water reabsorption from the 170 L of primary urine that the human kidneys produce each day. This review discusses molecular mechanisms(More)
