Gastric acid secretion in aquaporin-4 knockout mice.


The aquaporin-4 (AQP4) water channel has been proposed to play a role in gastric acid secretion. Immunocytochemistry using anti-AQP4 antibodies showed strong AQP4 protein expression at the basolateral membrane of gastric parietal cells in wild-type (+/+) mice. AQP4 involvement in gastric acid secretion was studied using transgenic null (-/-) mice deficient… (More)
