Table 3 Hydraulic conductivity (Lp) of X. laevis oocytes expressing wild-type (WT) DrAqp3b, DrAqp3b mutants or HsAQP3 determined after 2 or 10 min in a sucrose solution

From: Design and characterization of genetically engineered zebrafish aquaporin-3 mutants highly permeable to the cryoprotectant ethylene glycol

  Lp (μm/min/atm)
  2 min 10 min
Water 1.40 ± 0.06 a 0.69 ± 0.03 a
DrAqp3b-WT 2.15 ± 0.06 c 0.89 ± 004 b
DrAqp3b-H53A/G54H/T85A 1.94 ± 0.08 b 0.88 ± 004 b
DrAqp3b-T85A 2.57 ± 0.07 d 1.02 ± 0.04 c
HsAQP3 1.93 ± 0.07 b 0.87 ± 0.03 b
  1. Values (mean ± SEM) for water- and aquaporin-injected (1 ng cRNA) oocytes are calculated from the data in Figure 6A. Data from the same column with different superscript are statistically significant (ANOVA, p < 0.05).
