... Abstract Aquaporin-5 (AQP5) is a member of the water channel protein family. Although AQP5 has been shown to be present in sweat glands, the presence or absence of regulated intracellular translocation of AQP5 in sweat glands remains to be determined. In this article, recent findings on AQP5...

... Abstract Hydrogen sulfide (H 2 S), a gasotransmitter, is endogenously formed from l-cysteine by certain enzymes including cystathionine-γ-lyase (CSE) in the mammalian body. H 2 S sensitizes Ca v 3.2 T-type calcium channels, leading to excitation of sensory neurons followed by somatic...

...,and questions to be addressed. Although fluorescent chloridesensors cannot provide information about single channel electricalproperties, they have been very useful in quantifyingCFTR function in analysis of CFTR mutations, protein-proteininteractions, gene transfer, and high-throughput screening. ...
