By Stefan Hohmann,Søren Nielsen

Biophysical experiences within the 1950ies and 1960ies resulted in the cognizance that the water permeability of yes organic membranes has to be as a result of the presence of water transporting proteins. This speculation was once proven in 1991 and 1992 with the pioneering discovery of the 1st molecular membrane water channel, CHIP28, by way of Agre and coworkers. This fundamental membrane protein, that's plentiful within the erythrocyte membrane and in lots of epithelial cells, is now referred to as aquaporin-1 or AQP1. hence the phrases water channel or aquaporin are synonymous.
In July 2000 greater than 2 hundred researchers got here jointly in Gothenburg, Sweden, for the `3rd foreign convention at the Molecular Biology and body structure of Water and Solute shipping" to debate growth in this rising examine box. fifty eight varied displays from this convention are the root for this booklet. Cumulatively, those fifty eight brief chapters offer a balanced assessment complementing a variety of fresh experiences during this field.
