The aquaporin (AQP)-9 gene was recently isolated from human and rat liver cDNA libraries as a member of the water channel family for water and neutral solutes. Although the expression of AQP9 mRNA has been demonstrated in several organs including the liver and testis by Northern blot analysis, the cellular and subcellular localization of the AQP9 protein remains unclear. In the present light and electron microscopic immunohistochemical study, the localization of the AQP9 immunoreactivity was… CONTINUE READING
