Aquaporin-4 (AQP4), a mercury-insensitive water channel protein, is abundant in the central nervous system and is localized in astrocytes and ependymal cells. AQP4 is speculated to maintain the homeostasis of intracellular and extracellular water in the brain, but little is known about the mechanism of induction of its expression. To investigate the expressional regulation of AQP4, we analyzed changes in its expression during chemically induced differentiation of embryonal carcinoma cells (P19… CONTINUE READING
