Kocherginsky presented a critical analysis of our article (published in Small 8, 2012, pp. 1185-1190) in his paper "Aquaporin, forward osmosis and biomimetic membranes" (in Gen. Physiol. Biophys. 4, 2013, pp. 589-594). However, after a detailed analysis of his arguments, it is easy to recognize that Kocherginsky did not understand the permeability of aquaporin-based biomimetic membranes nor the membrane structures in our article. It is clear that Kocherginsky's interpretation of our article was based on wrong calculations and assumptions that are not justified. Herein, the main points mentioned in Kocherginsky's paper are summarized and a point-by-point response detailed showing how the errors have arisen.
