Aquaporin 5, also known as AQP5, is a water channel protein. The aquaporins (AQPs) are a family of more than 10 homologous water transporting proteins expressed in many mammalian epithelia and endothelia. At least five AQPs are expressed in the eye: AQP0 (MIP) in lens fiber, AQP1 in cornea endothelium, ciliary and lens epithelia and trabecular meshwork, AQP3 in conjunctiva, AQP4 in ciliary epithelium and retinal Müller cells, and AQP5 in corneal and lacrimal gland epithelia. Among the seven human aquaporins cloned to date (AQPs 0-6), genes encoding the four most closely related aquaporins (AQP0, AQP2, AQP5, and AQP6) have been mapped to chromosome band 12q13, suggesting an aquaporin family gene cluster at this locus. Aquaporin 5 plays a role in the generation of saliva, tears and pulmonary secretions.
