Vasopressin-dependent short-term regulation of aquaporin 4 expressed in Xenopus oocytes.

Abstract

Aquaporin 4 (AQP4) is abundantly expressed in the perivascular glial endfeet in the central nervous system (CNS), where it is involved in the exchange of fluids between blood and brain. At this location, AQP4 contributes to the formation and/or the absorption of the brain edema that may arise following pathologies such as brain injuries, brain tumours, and… (More)
