Technical Data
Aquaporin 11, Control Peptide (AQP11, AQP-11, AQPX1, PSEC0027, Aquaporin-11)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Control peptide for A3000-85 and A3000-85A, polyclonal antibodies to Aquaporin 11.

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 "aquaporin". A new member of AQP family, AQP11, has been cloned (1). AQP11 (human, rat mouse: 271aa each).

Two synthetic peptides corresponding to mouse AQP11 (Protein Accession #Q8BHH1 and human AQP11 (KLH).
