Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IP IH
Water is a critical component of all living cells. Interestingly, tissue membranes show a great degree of water permeability. Mammalian red cells, renal proximal tubules, and descending thin limb of Henle are extraordinarily permeable to water. Water crosses hydrophobic plasma membranes either by simple diffusion or through a facilitative transport mechanism mediated by special protein "aquaporins". Over the last decade, genes for several members of aquaporin family have been cloned, expressed, and their distribution studied in many tissues. AQP4 (MIWC, mercury-insensitive water channel) is expressed in brain and in other tissues as well. Aquaporin 4 is located in various tissues including the gastro-intestinal tract, kidney and brain.
