Fenton, R. A., A. Howorth, G. J. Cooper, R. Meccariello, I. D. Morris, and C. P. Smith. Molecular characterization of a novel UT-A urea transporter isoform (UT-A5) in testis. Am J Physiol Cell Physiol 279: C1425–C1431, 2000.—Urea movement across plasma membranes is modulated by specialized transporter proteins that are products of two genes, termed UT-A and UT-B. These proteins play key roles in the urinary concentrating mechanism and fluid homeostasis. We have isolated and characterized a 1.4… CONTINUE READING
