Gene: AQP3 (aquaporin 3 (Gill blood group)) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AQP3
Name: aquaporin 3 (Gill blood group)
Description: Exhibits glycerol channel activity and water channel activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hypoxia; glycerol transport; and response to retinoic acid. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell-cell junction; nucleoplasm; and plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AQP-3; aquaglyceroporin-3; aquaporin 3; aquaporin 3 (GIL blood group); aquaporin-3; GIL; Gill blood group
