Regulation of the Escherichia coli water channel gene aqpZ.


Osmotic movement of water across bacterial cell membranes is postulated to be a homeostatic mechanism for maintaining cell turgor. The molecular water transporter remained elusive until discovery of the Escherichia coli water channel, AqpZ, however the regulation of the aqpZ gene expression and physiological function of the AqpZ protein are unknown… (More)
