Aquaporin 7 Antibody

Affinity purified polyclonal antibody

  • WB - Aquaporin 7 Antibody AG1043-050
    Western blot analysis of mouse (lanes 1 and 3) and rat (lanes 2 and 4) kidney membranes: 1, 2. Anti-Aquaporin 7 antibody, (#AG1043), (1:500).
    3, 4. Anti-Aquaporin 7 antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen.
  • IHC - Aquaporin 7 Antibody AG1043-050
    Expression of Aquaporin 7 in rat kidney Immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded rat kidney sections using Anti-Aquaporin 7 antibody (#AG1043), (1:100). A. In the minor calyx, Aquaporin 7 staining (deep red) is specific for epithelial cells of the uroepithelium  B. In the cortical labyrinth, Aquaporin 7 staining is specific for renal tubules while the stronger staining is evident in the brush border (blue arrows). Hematoxilin is used as the counterstain.
  • ICC - Aquaporin 7 Antibody AG1043-050
    Expression of Aquaporin 7 in rat adipocytes Immunocytochemical staining of 3T3-L1 adipocytes using Anti-Aquaporin 7 antibody (#AG1043), (1:800), followed by goat anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-555 secondary antibody (red) (A). C. Anti-Aquaporin 7 antibody, preincubated with the control peptide antigen followed by goat-anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-555 secondary antibody. B., D. show visible light images of the adipocytes shown on (A) and (C) respectively.

Aquaporin 7 (AQP-7) belongs to a family of membrane proteins that allow passage of water and certain other solutes through biological membranes. The family is composed of 13 members (AQP-0 to AQP-12). Little is known about the function of the two newest members, AQP-11 and AQP-12.   The aquaporins can be divided into two functional groups based on their permeability characteristics: the aquaporins that are only permeated by water and the aquaglyceroporins that are permeated by water and other small solutes such as glycerol. This last group includes AQP-7, AQP-3, AQP-9 and AQP-10.   The proteins present a conserved structure of six transmembrane domains with intracellular N- and C-termini. The functional channel is a tetramer but each subunit has a separate pore and therefore the functional channel unit, contains four pores.   AQP-7 is expressed in ovary, testis, kidney and adipose tissue.   The function of AQP-7 in adipose tissue attracted much interest as mice deficient in AQP-7 developed adult-onset obesity and type 2 diabetes. AQP-7 modulates adipocyte glycerol permeability thereby controlling triglyceride accumulation and fat cell size
