|Official Full Name||aquaporin 4|
|Background||This gene encodes a member of the aquaporin family of intrinsic membrane proteins that function as water-selective channels in the plasma membranes of many cells. The encoded protein is the predominant aquaporin found in brain. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene.|
|Synonyms||AQP4; aquaporin 4; aquaporin-4; MIWC; WCH4; aquaporin type4; mercurial-insensitive water channel; HMIWC2; MGC22454|

AQP4 has several biochemical functions, for example, glycerol channel activity, water channel activity, water transmembrane transporter activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by AQP4 itself. We selected most functions AQP4 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with AQP4. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
