The aquaporins (AQPs) are a rapid growing family of water channel proteins found in animals, plants and microorganisms that raise plasma membrane water permeability required for efficient isosmotic fluid transport. Five homologs of aquaporins (AQP1, AQP2, AQP3, AQP4 and AQP5) have been identified from various mammalian tissues; the expression of these aquaporins in ocular tissues was studied. Semiquantitative expression levels of these aquaporins were determined in ciliary body, cornea, lens… CONTINUE READING
