Anti-Aquaporin-5 (AQP5) antibody is validated on mouse tissue and recommended for immunofluorescence labeling, IHC, or western blot of materials from rodent tissues.
Aquaporin, also known as water channel, mediates water permeation across the cell membrane. There are approximately 10 aquaporin genes in human genome. Aquaporin proteins are composed of six transmembrane domains, three extracellular loops, two intracellular loops and two intracellular termini.
Aquaporin-5 is encoded by the Aqp5 gene in human. Aquaporin-5 is highly expressed by the alveolar epithelium in the lung.
