|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Sheep, Dog|
|Calculated MW||28; [uniprot]28,20,23,17; KDa|
|Other Names||Aquaporin-1, AQP-1, Aquaporin-CHIP, Urine water channel, Water channel protein for red blood cells and kidney proximal tubule, AQP1, CHIP28|
|Format||0.01M TBS(pH7.4) with 1% BSA, 0.03% Proclin300 and 50% Glyce|
|Storage||Store at -20 °C for one year. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. When reconstituted in sterile pH 7.4 0.01M PBS or diluent of antibody the antibody is stable for at least two weeks at 2-4 °C.|
|Function||Forms a water-specific channel that provides the plasma membranes of red cells and kidney proximal tubules with high permeability to water, thereby permitting water to move in the direction of an osmotic gradient.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in erythrocytes (at protein level). Expressed in a number of tissues including erythrocytes, renal tubules, retinal pigment epithelium, heart, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Weakly expressed in brain, placenta and liver.|
