26029888 RHBG expression as a direct target of beta-catenin regulation.
25616663 Kidney AE1 actually associates with epithelial ankyrin-G and renal ammonium transporter RhBG, which also binds ankyrin-G.
24647713 Rh B Glycoprotein (Rhbg) and Rh C Glycoprotein (Rhcg) are identified as ammonia transporters. They are expressed in specific cell populations and membrane domains in distal renal epithelial cells, where they facilitate ammonia secretion.
24077989 RhAG, RhBG and RhCG-exhibit significant permeability to NH3 and show for the first time that RhBG and RhCG can conduct CO2.
23324176 human kidney expresses basolateral RhBG protein in connecting segment, type A intercalated cells, and non-A, non-B cells
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19429772 Rhbg and Rhcg may contribute to bronchial epithelial cell ammonia metabolism and suggest that they do not contribute to pulmonary carbon dioxide transport.
19357182 This study concludes that under normal conditions, RhCG is the major putative ammonia transporter expressed in the human kidney and RhBG is not expressed at detectable levels.
18635543 Phosphorylation and ankyrin-G binding of the C-terminal domain regulate targeting and function of the ammonium transporter RhBG
15929723 RhBG and RhCG facilitate ammonium movement across the plasma membrane; these results favor the hypothesis that these Rh glycoproteins, together with their homolog RhAG, constitute a family of NH3 channels in mammalian cells.
15611082 RhBG requires a tyrosine-based signal and ankyrin-G for basolateral targeting and membrane
15284342 Electric current measurements and intracellular pHi determinations suggest that RhBG acts as an electroneutral NH4+-H+ exchanger.
