AQP CHIP Protein
Aquaporin 1 Protein
Channel Forming Integral Membrane Protein Of 28 kDa
Channel-Forming Integral Membrane Protein Of 28 kDa
Aquaporin 1 forms a water-specific channel that is constitutively expressed at the PLASMA MEMBRANE of ERYTHROCYTES and KIDNEY TUBULES, PROXIMAL. It provides these cells with a high permeability to WATER. In humans polymorphisms of this protein result in the Colton blood group antigen.
