A genome project for the species Caenorhabditis elegans has demonstrated the presence of eight cDNAs belonging to the major intrinsic protein (MIP) family. We previously characterized one of these cDNAs known as C01G6.1. C01G6.1 was confirmed to be a water channel and newly designated as AQP-CE1 [Am. J. Physiol. 275 (1998) C1459-C1464]. In this paper, we examined the function of another MIP protein encoded by F40F9.9. This cDNA encodes a 274-amino acid protein showing a high sequence identity… CONTINUE READING
