1998). The genomes of most bacteria contain only one member of the aquaporin family, and the functional importance is yet undefined. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a favorite organism for genetic manipulations, and the recent genome sequencing has revealed genes for four aquaporin homologs. Two encode proteins with sequences more closely related to aquaglyceroporins, of which the FPS1 homolog has been studied extensively (see Chapter 8). , 1999). In lab strains, AQY1 encodes a protein that is not functional when expressed in oocytes.
