Technical Data
Aquaporin 6 (WCH3, hKID, AQP2-L)
AQP6 (WCH3 or hKID or AQP2-like; 282 aa; 29kD; chromosome 12q13) is found only in the kidney with low water permeability. AQP families of proteins are predicted to contain six transmembrane domains. The N and C-terminus are predicted to be cytoplasmic. AQP6 shows greatest homology with hMIP (48%) and hAQP-2 (52%). It also has similarity with human MIWC (AQP4; 34%), CHIP-28 (AQP1; 38%), and GLIP (AQP3; 22%).

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution
Western Blot: 1:1000-1:5000 using Chemiluminescence technique.
ELISA: 1:10,000-1:50,000. Coat ELISA plate with 1ug/ml control peptide.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Recommended Control Peptide:
A3000-25D: Aquaporin 6, Human, Control Peptide (WCH3, hKID, AQP2-L)

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
