Localization of Aquaporin-3 mRNA and protein along the gastrointestinal tract of Wistar rats

Abstract

 Since specific proteins responsible for water transport (aquaporins, AQPs) have been identified in a great variety of tissues, we decided to study the presence of AQP3 in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of Wistar rats. Poly(A+) RNA was purified from the mucosa of the stomach, jejunum, ileum and colon, and gross detection of AQP3 mRNA was done by Northern… (More)
