26896765 these findings suggest that AQP3 is required for EGF-EGFR cell signaling in cancer cells and is a therapeutic target for cancer progression.
26830227 results demonstrate that AQP3 is required for CXCL12-induced breast cancer cell signaling and directional migration by a mechanism involving the CXCL12-induced generation of extracellular H2O2 and subsequent intracellular transport by AQP3
26810286 Expression of CXCL4 and aquaporin 3 and 10 mRNAs in middle ear effusion is associated with the pathophysiology of otitis media with effusion.
26786101 Based on a comparative mutagenic analysis of AQP1, AQP 3, and AQP 4, the results suggest that loop D interactions may provide a general structural framework for tetrameric assembly within the AQP family.
26765123 AQP3 knockdown retards the growth of NSCLC cells partially through inhibiting HIF-1alpha/VEGF and Raf/MEK/ERK signalling pathways.
26568619 AQP3 was expressed in trophoblast explants. Blocking it with CuSO4 prevented apoptosis.
26506416 AQP3 was found to be expressed in 67.71% of parts with GIM, and AQP3 immunoreactivity was identified more frequently in severe GIM areas (P < 0.001). In short, the incidence and severity of GIM correlated with the distance from GC, and AQP3 was differentially expressed in goblet cells, with most AQP3-positive goblet cells presenting in severe GIM.
26454884 treatment of human HepG2 cells with TCDD also increased the expression of AQP3 mRNA and protein
26313002 the human aquaglyceroporins, i.e., AQP3, AQP7, AQP9 and AQP10 can act as silicon transporters in both Xenopus laevis oocytes and HEK-293 cells.
26261083 The study demonstrated the abnormal expression pattern of AQP1, AQP2, AQP3, and AQP4 in the kidney tissues of patients with nephrotic syndrome, providing a basis for an improved understanding of the role of aquaporins in the pathogenesis of this disease.
