PrecautionsAQP2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name AQP2
Function Forms a water-specific channel that provides the plasma membranes of renal collecting duct with high permeability to water, thereby permitting water to move in the direction of an osmotic gradient.
Cellular Location Apical cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Basolateral cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Shuttles from vesicles to the apical membrane. Vasopressin-regulated phosphorylation is required for translocation to the apical cell membrane. PLEKHA8/FAPP2 is required to transport AQP2 from the TGN to sites where AQP2 is phosphorylated
Tissue Location Expressed in renal collecting tubules.

Aquaporins are membrane proteins that serve in the transfer of water and small solutes across cellular membranes. One such aquaporin, aquaporin-2 (AQP2) is located in the kidney collecting tubule and plays a critical role in water reabsorbtion (1). AQP2 is mainly localized in intracellular vesicles but upon stimulation with anti-diuretic hormone (ADH), AQP2 is translocated to the apical plasma membrane by exocytic fusion of AQP2-bearing vesicles (2). Mutations in this gene have been linked to autosomal dominant and recessive forms of nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (3).
