Localization and Regulation of Aquaporins in the Murine Larynx
Conclusion: Expression of AQPs in the vocal folds and the parasympathetic regulation of AQPs in the laryngeal glands may be important for controlling laryngeal secretion and vocal fold hydration. These findings are thought to be an initial step towards understanding potential mechanisms of water flow through the vocal fold surface. Objectives: Lubrication of the vocal folds is important for phonation ... Read more
