The aquaporins represent a family of transmembrane water channel proteins that are widely distributed in various tissues throughout the body and play a major role in transcellular and transepithelial water movement. Most tumors have been shown to exhibit high vascular permeability and high interstitial fluid pressure, but the transport pathways for water within tumors remain unknown. In this study, we examined the distribution of the aquaporin 1 (AQP1) water channel protein in several types of… CONTINUE READING
